Just got doing a project. I had some older fully dressed atlantic salmon flies that I wanted to mount. Only had three that were nice (rest had moths that had a hay day, but they were hairwings anyways). Well, had a small shadowbox I was going to toss out. So did some renovation on the box, put a new liner in it, then did the dirty work. Had some sand dollars that I had painted a year or so ago. Don't laugh, yes I painted both of them. LOL. Mounted both in the box. Then, put the flies on cork and glued those in as well. All full dressed silver doctors I do believe (Malcom, help here???). But, this is my finished product. Kept this best pic. Was hard to get a good pic intact, with glass on. Looked better then having cover off. So, a tad bit of glare. But here's the finished product.
