Unfortunately I cannot review the item I ordered because I never received the correct order. I ordered 12's and received 18's. I promptly reviewed the paperwork which showed I ordered 12's and sent it off to the Fly Shop. The Fly Shop responded promptly and graciously told me to keep the 18's and they would send the 12's. Well once again they sent the 18's. I responded once again but never heard back from the Fly Shop so now I have 10 Copper John 18's taking up space in my steelhead fly box.

Nicely done. I bought enough to share with my Fishing buddies.
