Tying Instructions: Someone said they would like to see a fly tied with the USMC colours. Here is what I came up with. The fly sports a hand made lampglass bead by Matt Stoffolano. The colours are those of the Marine dress uniform and the USMC flag. I am contemplating doing a set that represents all branches of the branches of the military of the US. If anyone can help me to find photos of other service dress uniforms and their flags, I would appreciate the help.

I tied this fly and dedicate it not only to the USMC, but to all of the services and men & women who serve us and fight the good fight. You are the best!

Happy Trails!
