Yesterday I came home from work and my dog titus, best friend of 8 years, was lying in the floor and was unresponsive. We carried him, all 180 pounds of him, to the car and took him to the vet to be put to sleep. It was an absolutely miserable time. In honor of him this morning I tied this fly, which I named the Titus Spey. It will be fished exclusively this fall. Hope you all enjoy.

I'm terribly sorry to hear about your friend. That's a great looking fly you tied, I'm sure you'll enjoy fishing it and certain it will be productive.

Thanks everyone. He was a very special dog. I tried to use materials that would match his brindle coloring. I am pretty happy with how it turned out.

BCBound I emailed you the recipe.

Always sorry to hear or read something like this, many people here know from my posts that I'm a dog kinda guy and I have always loved them. Living with them and parting with them for almost 50 years of my life I understand your grief and I wish you well.

From one dog guy to another,

Thanks Ard.
I have had to go through this with other dogs in my life, and it is always hard. This one is particularly hard because of the special nature of this dog and the void he filled in my life.

Appreciate the thoughts everyone.
