Green Blossom

Here's a color variation on, inmo one of the prettiest hairwings, the Orange Blossom.
The early spring & summer like water levels of some of the salmon rivers here has got me back to the vise to top off my boxes with some smaller patterns for my up coming season.
Feels good to tie again after a long while.
Thanks for looking.

Thanks Mike. Glad to see you're back at it also! You haven't missed a beat with your Balmorals and Skiers you last posted!

Here are a few from yesterday. My one year old son helped me with a few. More like sabotaged, but we had fun!

That's the sickness! Unbelievable line up. I'd love to just sit by on the river banks watching you swing those beauties.
