    Thanks. Body is 4 colors of seals fur, canary, yellow, dark orange and crimson ribbed with marabou, which hides two of three body colors, but when wert you will see them

    Wow, very impressive. I am not sure I'll ever have my mind in a place where I can attempt Salmon flies. Fantastic.

    That's some sexy stuff. I bet it has tons of jiggle in the H20. Will you fish that pattern or does it have a different destiny?

    its destiny is the wall in my dining room. I'm working on 5 more salmon flies to complete a set of 6. The rest will be on Ronn Lucas hooks. Hopefully I'll get them done over the winter. got some swaps and orders to clear up before i can get back to them.
