Ron,

The Kelson Kate, listed in "The Salmon Fly", does not have a tail veiling, cheeks, horns, or chenile head. Price-Tannant's has tail veiling, cheeks and horns but no chenile head, and Maxwell's has the tail veiling and Jungle Cock but no horns. Since I have found that cheeks, tail veiling, horns, and anything other than a thread head make no difference in the fly's effectiveness, I tie and fish the Kelson version.

Sinktip has the Glasso flies because he was the one who arranged for the framing of the set through a friend of his; therefore, he will have to get the mounted set posted.
