Sooieeet! I'm going to have to tie a few of those "just because" . . . Thanks, Scott!


Chucking a dead parrot on a piece of string!
That blue and golden olive color combination is another one that was a staple for fishing in the lochs of Scotland, that doesn’t seem to work worth a damn in the Pacific Northwest.

Great looking fly though, I’d tie that on as a bob fly in a heartbeat if I was fishing a Scottish loch!
