apparently the tree liked it too.. that was the first stone ive tied that i was proud of.... for some reason i always have trouble with stones, and i dont understand why, i can tie similar flies with my eyes closed....... just wish i took better pictures of it before going out...

thread is again, black

i cant remember if i wrapped the hook with lead or not.... i think i did, that thing had some weight to it!
