a well tied wounded minnow. that will be saved as a model for future tying

Thank u, this pattern was shown to me by Reggie Alexander who knew Everett Drakes, buzek award winner. There is a 1/8 bead under that head, and original pattern had 20 lbs. mono laid on either side of hook shank, starting behind bead, going back to Hook point. Neat pattern, this one has a smaller plastic bead, so its fish at surface, but could be fished as streamer with that bigger bead

Wife brought mine in to hospital to look over. Great set as usual.

 

BB, this set might have caught you in the postage lag. Prices went up again but it may be that the return postage was at older prices when sent out but you caught the sets going out at greater price. You should not have to cover that. Just send them out and if there is postage due I'm certainly going to pay the 50 cents to get my flies.`

Thanks for the get well wishes I had a little set back last week developed a blood infection last week so i spent another 5 days in the hospitable .. I'm home now dealing with a 24/7 IV infusion until the 16th  and to top it off when I had my heart surgery they bang my leg or grab it hard because I have cellulitis in my left leg .. I just can not win for losing this month ..
