Dear JIMMY,

 

Nice to see YOU 'peeping up' again FLIES from Your vise !!! hahahaha...ah realy it does fine to see Your shoulder is again 'intact' and premits YOU to 'BOBBIN' thread and feathers on a hook !!!

 

It's a lovely fly...and it has enough to seduce any but then any trout (be it stillwater (loch, lough, lake, reservoir...be it would be on a river)...

 

What did YOU use for the 'throath ? (woodcock ?)

 

pstttttttttt must presume that this fly is a 'own' pattern with classical notes...as I didn't found it in  'TROUT AND SALMON FLIES' by MALONE...neither in 'VENIARDS 500 FLY DRESSINGS'...neither in Peter O'Reilly his book 'FLIES OF IRELAND', neither in BARRY GREWCOCK his 'FLY DRESSERS GUIDE TO CLASSIC SALMON AND SEA TROUT FLIES'...and neither in that big friend of mine RAY BERGMAN his book 'TROUT' (hahahahaha yes Bergman I call a friend 'in time' psttttttttttt but don't tell this to anybody ...especially DD)

 

CONTINUE...yes Your 'break' is over !!! FINISHED

 

press stop !

 

Geert

My thoughts on the lovely fly align with Heert. It is amazing that he has moments when he's lucid enough to make such delightful observations. And then something gets fouled up - fowl in Geert's case, I'm afraid - and the poor old Belgian cop skips off into lala land again.
Very good that your shoulder is healed and to see this fly.
