Honey Blonde  was tied by Contributing Fly Tyer William Lovelace.   See many more of his flies at his page on this site, The Flies of William Lovelace.

Bill's Notes: One of the original Blondes. The High Tie wing angle is supported by some thread turns pulled under the wing. The Honey and Strawberry Blondes are the only 2 Blondes that Brooks used gold tinsel for the body.
