    In honor of the fact that your not actually dead Jim :thumb: - I dressed this hook for you this morning-- I called it Swan's Blue, no delivery though- you gotta come get it.

    round silver tag, silver rib, yellow floss body, grey and yellow spey hackle, dyed blue bronze mallard wing.

    Thanks for the fly. But being that you live so far away I'll probably have to find a place to stay over night.(He lives about 5 miles from me,and that could be stretching it).

    Jim

    Should find some time to come over,but I'm lazy and there's few things I should be doing, What they are I have no idea.

    I think that is the second fly named for me.If you go to Silverbrowns gallery you will see another fly there called the old lawless. I have the old part to the name of the fly. I don't have that one but I wish I did.

    that'd be a keeper would it? Sorry Jim, I chopped up your fly , it needed redoing with the few hackles I have left. $$$ are tight and needed them
