Here's a pic of Chuck's nicely tapered Shadfest fly, which is about 15" long.

I'll let him fill in the recipe and any other details.

Mark. Thanks for posting a pic of Chucks fly. Hey Chuck. It's high time you gave this fly a name! How about this? Let's give Grizz some help! I'll start with the Grizzly Bear!

How about "Chucky", because it's a big fly to chuck and Chuck tied it? ;)
