A lovely fly! Really enjoy the pop of the red herl.

That's got to be, my "fly of the month" & the photo, really does it full justice as well.

Thanks!
The herl really did its job on this one, tried to mount a few strands of red in the wing, but that did not work out

Very Nice!  And cleanly executed.  Really brings home the winter solstice theme!
