    Nice job on both, Mark.
    The Wild Irishman is a pattern which has some meaning to me. Many years ago, I had the pleasure of meeting Charlie DeFeo and he gave me his version of the Wild Irishman to wear on my fishing hat. Sadly, I lost the fly many years later somewhere on the Beaverkill River.

    Thanks Jack, and to everyone who enjoyed looking at these.

    Jack, thats a shame to have lost that fly, something that can never be replaced. Of course you could tie another one ??

    I think the only part of that fly I could get to look like that would be the dubbing. They look amazing.
