Robbie, this is a great looking fly, reminds me a lot of Bill Carpan's baby gaspereau fly. Great work, is the head epoxy or one of the uv hardeners?

Thanks Emac. 5 min Dollar Store epoxy. It is a spin off from Carpan's pattern

I think that you killed it, I like the look better than the original.
Can you post your pattern?
Thanks

That`ll work without a doubt Robbie! I have seen the original work in the hands of professor Slim!
