Not sure who Ed Smith is. There was no one by that name in the swap. I think this was one of the three beautiful Liquid Lace-bodied patterns tied by Randy Diefert. Randy will be a stand-in tyer at the Bellevue show next month. Perhaps we can persuade him to post the times he'll be tying so we can all say 'Hi'.
This fly was given to me by Ed Smith of Kamloops BC as a gift to the fly swappers. Ed is the Owner of Liquid Lace Products. I asked Ed for some Ideas for this swap as I don't usually fish "emerger" patterns.We were kicking around ideas as far as getting a fly that would float in the surface film.This fly does that.and looks good from all directions when viewed in a glass of water. The tail is lemon wood duck. body is midge lt brown liquid lace, the wing, grose tail feathers and badger hackle. This is a very nice Fly and I thank Ed for giving it to us swappers as a gift.
