Raptors "on-the-fly"

I was at the "Bird of Prey Days" at Braddocks Bay Park today... very interesting. I've long been a fan   of the Raptors and a part time bird watcher. Whether Michelle and I are here in the East or out West we are always on the look-out for; Eagles, Ospreys, Hawks, Owls, Falcons, etc...

Tying the Found Link (by Kelly Galloup)

I really like this Mayfly pattern. I played around at the vise this morning and tied a few. Here's one I tied as a PMD on a #14 1xl dry fly hook. It doubles as a spinner and an upright winged Mayfly. The upright wing is also used as a sighter for us old guys and when viewed from the bottom it looks like a spinner.
