Margotís Fly

My oldest daughter has been watching me with much enthusiasm at the tying bench this last 2 months. Today she says, ďDaddy, will you tie me one?Ē Of course I says! So asked her if she would like me to let her tie, to that she promptly responded, ďNo, Iím going to design it. You will tie it.Ē

Okay I says. She then asked for a blank sheet of paper to draw it out and if she could lay all the materials out she wanted. So of course I let her!

2 life lessons for me here:

1. Women know how to spend your money (I mean, she spared no expense! From the nicest eyes to my glow in the dark tubes!)
2. They just know how to be in charge

You make known to me the path of life;
in your presence there is fullness of joy;
at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

Nice tube fly

Wing is nicely tapered which will help it swim even in the slowest currents.

I dig the colours too, they have some 'pop'.

Good work, both of you!

All that fly needs is a pic of it hanging out of the jaw of a big buck! Nice job!

I set it on her pillow last night, she has been playing with it and took it to church today........Iím thinking she feels like it is a Unicorn stuffed animal!
