Silverdoc,

These dee conversion are in a word, awesome. Your work clearly puts you among the best tyers of today. Thanks for sharing them with the membership so that all can see what well-proportioned, well-tied dees look like. Glasso would probably be honored to have his fly converted to a dee style.
