It's really nice to see this fly. You have determination that is delightful to see, and his fly show very well. I'm with Gotz - what n encouraging post; excellent tips from others, too. I felt the fly needed a fuller ostrich butt, like Dave. Also, if the hackle mimed the flow of the wing more - was swept back for, as Bogdan said, there was more flow.
I wonder if you should wander out this way in July when we have a Cotinga Club meeting at the cabin - fishing, lying and cooking out, while contributing ants and/or honey to the collection I'll use on Geert next year? Wonder if a few of the guys would have some useful tips for you, too.
Hope you're well.
