Charlie, I may be up next week water permitting. I was going to hit the road for this weekend but I see it may only be good for beer drinking...which I can do just fine here ;-)

Another note on your tie is the wing is perfect. I've noticed that some of Marc's colored Picasse have more wing material these days but my understanding is that some sports wanted more hair for the buck so he's been tying them with more wing material with the recommendation that you thin the wing out to suit you and your fishing. Now, I don't take lightly to working around his flies with scissors but I have thinned some out so they are more translucent. It was designed originally with a thinnish wing and that's how I like them.

I had a beautiful green one I cast into a tree this year. If I could swim better I'd have chopped the tree down.
