Default The Christmas Candy

Hi Guys
i had to put this on the forum, a good fly tying instructor and colleague came to the house last week to see my son who has badly injured in a motorbike accident 18 months ago and was left paralised. He heard we were setting up a fund raising (Operation Mark).
He gave me a small box and inside was one of the most beautifully dressed flies i have ever seen, it was dressed by Chuck Moxley from cortland Ohio one of the best fully dressed tyers in the world.
as you can see from the phot, it is incredible how he has done the wing.

That's certainly a very special fly. Besides, the wing, the body is also very nice; green pinstriped rear with candycane front. And the gold hook! Thanks for posting.

I hope that Operation Mark is a great success for you.

Best regards,

Allan
