A first for me: the classic Lady Caroline!

I have looked at this for a long time but have been missing the materials to do it properly. The base pattern itself is not difficult, but getting it perfect is another thing: I’ll tie up a batch of these for fishing this winter, maybe experimenting with some sealsfur for body dubbing.
