Delicate ... pretty ... and probably deadly (if fished), like a solar flare.

Not fully gutted this one, but I'll sure tie up some of this to fish with next year!

That's a beauty. You've got that tippet to sit very well. I can't enforce how much I like that one.
Matthew 25: 35-36 "Out of every 100 men, 10 shouldnt even be there, 80 are just targets, nine are the real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, for they make the battle. Ah, but the one, one is a warrior and he will bring the others back. "No man ever steps in the same river twice"   Heraclitus, 5 B.C

Damn eide, perfection again. I always enjoy seeing your creations.
