When I worked at a fly shop the owners had a lawyer friend that had a trade show and wanted some thing special to hand out. He was thinking about a fly in his logo colors on a business card. Blue, black, orange and gold. This was what I came up with and he loved it, the caveat need 250 in two weeks:Eyecrazy:. OH holly SHEETS BAT MAN !! Ok head down and eyes crossed I made the dead line though some wings looked a little bad(was a strugle material wise for that many). Needed glasses after that haha. So here it is the card fly, ya his company was CRD haha

Time out.... Did you say 250 in two weeks??

Great fly but my god that's an undertaking!! I would think about a dubbed or wool body to speed things up.

It was several yrs ago. I tie with a Nore Vise so the body takes seconds with the spool in a bobbin. I did it in a two step process, all the bodies then the wings. Ya it looks great with a seal body!! And the steel approve!!!

Very fishy fly !!
I don't think I can tie 250 of any fly, it would become way to monotonous !!
