I'm posting this pic mostly for the hook. Based on the very hard to read red ink on the wrapping paper this is a Gaelic Supreme 1/0, 6XL, ringed eye, forged perfect bend. Simply an awesome old hook. These are high carbon Sheffield steel, more likely to break than bend. I would venture to guess they were made pre-1980. I like the fly I tied - except I should have folded the bucktail bottom wing back before the collar as it splays a bit more than desired. Streamers work.
