Butcher

Hey all!

Here's a butcher I wrapped up a while back, somehow forgot the yellow in the throat. Comments and critiques welcome!

Beautiful work. I was wondering what gear you use to get photos like that?

I think you nailed it Chris.

Love this pattern for fishing!!
Your rendition is definitely wall mountable
I will also say, I like the Butcher done as a mixed wing (like you did, ala Blacker) opposed to the married wing versions (P-T) we often see.

wouldn't this be a built wing since the tippet are whole back to back, and veiled with the sprigs, instead of a mixed? cameron

Butcher...

Simply beautiful...
Very well executed.
Mixed wing, a la Blacker & Rogan, works perfectly in your dressing and fishes better.

Thanks for the inspiration.
