Traditional March Brown.

Very nice.  I recognized that photo from a site I have bookmarked on the great variety of styles for the March Brown, only now did I put 2 and 2 together.  

Good luck with the shoulder, hope it heals quicker than the transition into warmer weather.

A new pattern I have been working on for awhile. These little guys are with me all the time while fishing, drive me crazy, and can't hide from them. (not the kids)
