    Wanted to tie up my "kid's flies". So sat them down, and pretty much let them run rampant. Had them pick materials, and I laid them on the hook best I could. They also helped in the design as well. So, they're a bit out there, but I actually liked the look on both of them. This one was kind of fitting. Son's "petname" has always been Bradley Bear. Since wing is made of Bear, figured I'd just make it a nice fit.

    That's a pretty gorgeous fly. *sigh* reminds me of how much practice I still need.
