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.
