Very nice, artistic and simple. Do you fish them and if so for what. Or do you display them in Mystic Seaport. I really like these classic old-timey looking flies.

They need a period fly display from back when flies were flies and you're just up the pike a spell. I bet back in the period all the rich ship owners were off in the Catskills  or Bershires during the Summer fishing with these beauties. Awesome fly Flytyer!

This past summer I picked up some wool from a vender. Grey and also white, palmful of each. free. They do so much there. I'm pretty much there for the boats but all the seasonal events and displays add to the atmosphere.
