For the life of me I can't understand why this fly doesn't get more play, Ronn. I'd rank with your best, which is some of the best I've seen

In all seriousness, that's another stunner and it's cool seeing you dig out these feathers.

You're really looking close Val. I have half a dozen spools of variegated tinsels. That is one of them. If you look at the other fly I posted under the seems quiet thread, the front body joint has a variegated embossed tinsel on each side of the herl. It shows two or three colours.

You have no idea Ted. Since I began not posting flies so much as I did in the beginning, I've tied in excess of 150 +- flies that no one other than Royce has seen. No particular reason other than I just didn't take photos of almost all of them. I have no idea if that's a big number compared to other tyers but compared to all the time spent on them, it's big for me. Use to take one, two or more weeks to tie one, now it is about one in two or less days. This began about the time I broke my hip and couldn't do much more than sit. Guess something good out of a glass of lemonade.

I've been pondering Ronn's production over the last six months ... everytime I look at the shelves full of flies, I ask my self, how do we get those out so people can see these up close. As I said before, photo's don't do these justice as I'm sure is the case with many other tyers work.
While looking at the Blacker books I realize we have an outstanding piece of reference but I'd still like to see some of his flies in person.

Ok Val! I can put up about four and there is a motel or two near my place. We used to have a few guys fly in and others drive for three or four days of tying, eating, BSing and for those inclined can sip the drinks of choice. If there is any interest by anyone, shoot me an email or call.

Love the fly Ronn. Always wanted a cormorant in my shelves.
