@Moshup Man! Nice job! The first thing I noticed was the body so I looked to see what material it was.  So many tricks to learn from you guys! Again nice job. 

Thanks Pbass.  We all learn from each other..

@upnorthtier Nice ones! I noticed dozens in the boxes below, did you tie all of those?! Impressive! 

@Moshup Nice work... Of all of the classic wet patterns, the P&O has brought more to the net for me than any other. 

thanks and yes I tied all those flies in the trays. restocking for next season, most will be gone by next fall--sold. I usually sell 30 dz or so royal wulff a year

@flytire I am intrigued by that book. A quick Google search showed a picture of a few of the pages... is the whole book just recipes with no pictures? Regardless, I may order a used copy. Nice fly also, another fine example of the great work you do.
