striblue Yes Adrian..the lower one is a mackrel...and a bueatiful fly...She does great work..I don't remember the top one. If I tyed the Grocery fly bigger I would have had that crusty looking Marabou shank in the fly which you can see in the picture...but tied it smaller... I will post the Mack tonight....The Grocery fly picture looks as though the marabou is tan or light brown..but the actual recipe calls for yellow... There are other color difference with the recipies and the pictures in that book.

That's one of a hell good looking fly, I have Veverkas Book, and I called and talked to Gail, about the grocery fly, up or down in Maine, when I first got the book, that was quite a while ago, after our very informative conversation, she said that see would mail me one of her grocery flies, but for some reason it never materialized.
You have a masterpiece in your Grocery Fly, love it.
