Just finished a cool project for a friends wedding in a few months.  10 Bakers and 10 Greenwell married wings for the Bridesmaids, Groomsmen and close family as well as 60 Blue Charms, 60 Golden Demons, 60 Grizzly Kings and 60 Bondatti's Killers for the wedding attendees.
 
Enjoy!!

Geez Frank, do you still have skin on your fingers after all that? 

 

I once had an instructor define professionalism as being able to do something consistently on demand, over and over, again and again.  This is the absolute definition of professionalism.

Now there's a good day's work, Frank.  Can you get me an invite to the reception?

 

All kidding aside my friend. it's great to see your fly tying chops so deservedly recognized.  It's casual and fishy excellence are hallmarks of your work.  Always done with great attention to detail, proportion and integrity.  To this day I remember swapping flies with you streamside, both of us reaching for the best fish getter.  Congratulations on a head shaking achievement

Thank you for the kind words everyone!!  It was definitely a time consuming project and needed a couple days from the vice after getting the hairwings done.  A very good learning experience as well......need to get better at toppings!!
