    Here's a simpler fly I started a week ago and finished the body, but didn't get a chance to finish the fly till today. Had to mount the wings several times before I could get it, goose shoulder is so soft it's sometimes hard to work with by itself, Still not as good as I would like but will have to do, and the head doesn't have the best shape to it.
    Thought it was kind of a neat pattern, hope you like it.

    Love this one Mark. Perfect in every way. The wing is fine, just the right depth to balance the fly top to bottom in my opinion!!

    Thanks Eunan, much appreciated. I went through a few sets of goose slips trying to get the wings just right, without bunching up, it finally worked out OK. Next one is going on one of the reworked hooks you sent me, just need the time.
