A gorgeous fly, Dave. Expertly dressed. I guess when a tier works at this level even the little things seem important. And speaking of little things, If you had prepped/ stroked the white tipped turk to a pointed taper it would have been the icing on the cake. Yeah, I'm being pickySmile

Thank you Dave, I appreciate the pointers and will pay more attention to that underwing in the future!!

Nice tie Dave! The JC in the tail looks as if tied in reversed sides with the curvature going up. Overall A good dressing.

Thanks Marty.  I tried the JC both ways (curve up and down) and went with what you see. If I had a mulligan I would choose a different pair and shoot for something a little straighter.
