Talking Mrs.Wallis Simpson

This is my conversion of a trout/ salmon fly to a FlatWing.In 1936 King Edward 8th and Mrs. Wallis Simpson, an America wished to marry. Because Mrs.Simpson was divorced, with two husbands still living, the English goverment took the view that she could NOT marry King Edward,an be Queen.
at this time a KILLER style trout fly was developed and a name was required. to
a trout, the fly is very attractive; it's a fly worth having; a fly that would merit a trout giving up his kingdom for.Hence the name Mrs, Simpsom trout fly was Christend.
