    I tied this for a friend who recently retired from the Air Force. He was a B-52 Navigator.

    I think it is approriately tied in blue and silver with swept wings, just like It's namesake

    Warren,

    Very nice! Good to chat with you last nite. How are you fixed for blue eared pheasant? I've got a full skin, hasn't had but two feathers pulled from it.

    Great tie, Warren...another gift, I'm guessing? :thumb:

    I notice you're still finding a way to slip a little red into just about every fly of any reasonable size...

    And, pardoning my ignorance in advance, is it a spey fly?

    Thanks Ron, and thanks for the offer, I have enough BEP to hold me over. When I run out I will let you know

    Mike, I would call this a spey fly but I have to defer to smarter people that me to be sure
