Scott, who tied this week's Atlantic Salmon Fly, hairwing style, shows his talent her with feather wings.
This Steelhead and Salmon fly is a simple thank-you for Stu Farnham's gentle tutelage on tying with feather wings. Stu's many talents (and creativity) at the vise are surpassed only by his kind and generous nature - and I'm honored to call him my friend.
