Suttton's Despair

I came across mention of this fly in some reading the other day. Wondering if any of you tie these, and if so would you be interested in some kind of exchange of some sort? I don't tie, but have other gear to offer.

    Mike, message me your snail address and I'll see what I can do, although it may take a bit because I'm up to my earballs in streamers. It looks like a pretty simple tie and a really good-looking pattern for up here in Maine. Beyond that, Hans has a tutorial available, so I don't foresee any real problems (I certainly can't guarantee Mr. W's quality, though.) Price? Don't worry about it unless you have a couple dozen wood duck skins lying around--I'll mail you a half-dozen once I get up to snuff on them. Incidentally, name your desired hook size.

    Message sent, Jim. Thanks also to you, Don.
