Leon Guthrie writes about this fly, "This was a joint effort to commemorate my survival of the 2 heart attacks I sustained, tied by the much admired workmanship of Scotty Howell, the blood red and chosen materials symbolize the network of blood vessels of the heart. Scotty as usual has done a tremendous job."
