Ok, slightly off topic, but not completely.

We are getting a male black lab pup and I want the registration name to be fly fishing/tying related. If it was a chocolate female I had settled on Bamboo Mahogany Dun, aka Maggie. If it was a yellow lab male it would be Pale/Dark (depending upon dog's shade) Sulphur Drake aka Sully. So far the only BLM name I can come up with is Early Black Stone aka Earl, and Earl doesn't roll off the tongue for casting the pup to ducks and geese.

Thanks!

You could stick with Early Black Stone aka Stony......spelling could vary. Of course call him what you want and teach him to answer to "Hey stupid".
They call it roadkill, We call it dubbing.

I was thinking Zonker when I saw this on the fly tying bench. Or maybe Trico?
