Tyers, we will be tying Harry Lemire’s Lady Carolyn’s Black Dog. When everthing settled I was not able to find it in Harry’s collection but I did have a photo that Harry sent me in the past.
So if the materials are not exact….please “don’t bust my chops”
 
Also I will include details of the BLACKER #1 ,at the tail end of this email, that we will be tying April. It is a complex fly and requires time to procure materials so I wanted to give you a heads up.
