That is a sweet looking fly. May have to tie up a few of those.

BTW, love your signature. I may have to "quote" you on that one. :D

Ya' gotta' love blue and purple flies, especially dee style one that are as well tied as this one. Ever try it wih a red or a blue wing instead of the hot orange?

Happy Trails!

Sweet tie! Could you shoot me a private e-mail about the possibility of swapping a couple of your Dark Winter's Hope(s) for a few of my mangy fleas?

Mangy fleas? Sure and I got some prime land for sale in the Everglades that would be a bargain for a flyfisher.
