Really like this one Ronn. The hook is spectacular and a great match for the dressing. Love the wing choice!!
Awesome as allways, but have you completly quit those pearl bodieflies you tied so many of some years ago? Been long time since i seen one of those from you. Hook is awesome. I waiting for better time for my norvegian currency against US dollars and i will order some hooks from you, have a good number of PJ hooks but not much of the other types left.
A beauty Ronn...both the fly and the tribute to Ms. Smith.

Thanks guys. KO I just don't think of tying a beaded fly often. I have so much fun the bodies I tie now . I'll try a little harder to do them.
Happy Trails!
