The Doctor will see you now...

I've been swamped with stuff to tie lately as the Salmon River's salmon run is peaking now.  I did have a couple of non-fly tier "thank yous" to do and had a buddy tie me up some blind eye hooks.  I decided to tie and old favorite.  The Silver Doctor.  Keep in mind 99.9% of my flies are intended to be fished, no displayed.  The recipients aren't fly tiers, so they won't notice the chunky yellow floss that covers the poor tag job, or the synthetic underwing, or the gobby head cement job. The one is intentionally overhackled. I was still pleased with the out come and it gives me motivation to improve the next time.....evolution if you will.

I Don't Need No Doctor
