Keep in mind all of the colors where picked by a 6 (7 in 15 days) year old child. I tried to keep her hands on this fly as much as possible. The wings are not perfect but good for the first try of a dad and 6 year old. I held the married wings and under wing she did the rest. Ill do some more red lacquer and then box it up for Bud.

 

Bud thanks you for your help and wondrous ability. Your flies in particular catch em's eye and you generosity is bar none! Sorry for the delay on this fly but I haven't wanted to push her. Now that school is out and her (our ) big vacation is done we made time to finish!

Keep in mind I made the wings and helped her place them. But she did the floss ribbing for the most part solo. Bud this fly will be in the mail this week! thanks again for your help and motivation!!!
