My favorite fly for trout, besides a mouse, is a damsel fly. A damsel is a real meal, and delicious dinner, easy to see and key in on. Your local craft store has the best materials, bank on it!
This trout is hand cast in yellow bronze, then set into sculptured pewter that overlays a base of cartridge brass and nickel. A copper bezel is soldered into the pewter, then a piece of turquoise from the Sleeping Beauty Mine (now closed), Globe, Arizona, is set into the bezel. Each buckle is unique- no two are identical. This is an elegant marriage of 5 recycled USA metals, and a USA gemstone. Made with hand tools, signed by me, 2.25 inches diameter.
This buckle is partnered with a full grain buffalo leather belt. Buffalo is thicker, softer, more flexible, stronger, and resists abrasion better than cow leather. Read more about your 1.5 inch wide buffalo leather belt here.
Note: Belt size is waist size in inches, plus 2.

I personally make everything. If I am in the studio, then it might take a few days. If I am in the field it can take a bit longer. Don't hesitate to shoot me an email and inquire. If I am in e-range, I will reply.
