    Sweet tie and impression. Nice Carrie Stevens-ish headwork.

    What's the pedigree on the pattern? I couldn't find anything after a quick search, is it one of your own?

    Is my own pattern. I usually tie a St. Patrick's Day streamer. This year I'm early so now I will have to come up with another one. The fly is in the mail today to Ireland.

    Wow Jack, you painted that! I'm impressed...you should start filling up the pages in the art and literature section
    with some of your work.
