Cool Popham...Finally Done

Well I finally finished that Popham that was in a semi-complete state from my post about keeping busy.

The fly is still in the "raw" state...it needs another coat of head cement and some preening to really be called done. Something to do today before mounting it in some fashion or another.

George,

Another beautiful fly from your vise(s). What are the hook details, such as size and make?

Doug

That was not a bad cast. I was just casting to the nearby fish.
