Comments:
The motivation for this fly began after finding a spool of Kreinik metallic ribbon with the intriguing color name "Vatican Gold". Since this body material already had some religious overtone, my thought was to link this with some other kind of religious symbolism. I had remembered something being written about 'tongues of fire' descending upon the disciples, and that mental imagery seemed bold enough for a truly 'hot' attractor pattern. A combination red/orange wing would be fiery enough. The Vatican Gold ribbon gave it some flash, and peacock sword for contrast and just because I like it (though, one could further symbolize that the green represents a few dollars for the collection plate on Sunday).
