    Hi everyone, here's one I finished today, been in my vise since last week but hadn't gotten around to it (been fishing). I went with the Pryce-Tannatt version so I could use some florican bustard I bought a while back but most of it is covered up, oh well ...
    It also has tippets in strands instead of the usual tippets back to back as you would
    normally see and I kind of like it....

    Hope you like it...

    That fly illustrates the definition of the word "perfect".
