Green Spot Pheasant Tail by Curtis Fry

I am really enjoying the the flies tied by Curtis Fry and his fine site, www.flyfishfood.com, if you have not had the time to visit it and watch his collection of flytying video's, you are missing out. Quality flies, quality videos. The flies are not overly complicated but will be amazingly effective on many waters.
This is a prime example. what a great freestone pattern, tied in sizes 14-16.
