An Unexpected Gift

Hardly a day goes by that I don't find an email or direct message on one of the T.F.M. social media pages with questions about fiberglass fly rods, fly lines, gear, or destinations.  I have a good time hashing through these conversations and a few months ago traded messages with a fellow who had a few questions which we had a good time working through.  
Sometime later a package arrived in my mailbox with a small framed piece of artwork and a thank you note.  This was completely unexpected and though I'd really like to share the artist's name, he has asked remain anonymous for his own reasons which I want to respect.  I did ask if I could share the step by step images of how this deer-hair hair frog came together and figured that everyone would get a kick out of it, even if they didn't know who the artist is by name.

So, no website or social media to share on this one but hope you enjoyed it.  I have it up on my wall at work in a collage of other favorite pieces of artwork from friends.
