Marty's Retirement Gift (Green Flatlander)

Here's a take on Marty's Green Flatlander for his retirement gift. I've had the pleasure of getting to know Marty over the past couple of years and I can say he's made a lasting impression on my friends and I. Without his SBS I wouldn't be tying these style flies or even had attempted one. So thanks Marty and I hope to share some more runs with you in the future. Hope you all enjoy and thanks for taking a gander!

This dressing strikes all the right chords with me. A magnificent piece of tying
