Hi Folks

The last of the six I think. Not happy with the black dose, will probably do another fly for that. Thought this was a simple but interesting doctor. Best regards Mike

Great job. Always had a soft spot for this fly - but never felt I really nailed it - probably coz it was one of the first classics I came across when I was about 12 - in David Collyer's books as a low water pattern.

If you want really simple you want the Grey Doctor!

<b>I have found, recently, that it is a good move on the flyfisherman's part to invest in a shed, garage or any other structure that is not connected to the main living quarters. Primarily as a respite, but also to quell any beatings, both verbal and physical that come from the feminine co-inhabitor. This, after finding dye, waxes and animal bi-products littered all over the kitchen, as well as the ceiling. A word to the wise.........don't use the good pots. -Jamie Daly</b>

Been out for a week, going through the posts. Very nicely done, Mike. You have a way with roofs, and nice to see this doctor get some representation!
