As I mentioned earlier, I've been busy lately. I'm making a series of fly fishing belts. I make the buckles in solid Sterling silver, the belts are fine English bridle leather made for me by a leather smith in Damariscotta. This is the first "fly" buckle I've made, all the others depict game fish. I am very pleased with how well it came out, I hope you like it. Terry

That's a great looking buckle and belt. As many times I've stumbled and fell lately while wading I might be scared of sinking with that on.
