I need to add a few of these to my stonefly box. Great-looking pattern!

I tried a lighter version of your pattern last week. White legs and natural Hares Mask. I believe the fish wanted darker like your version. I tied a few of these up for my next trip. Size 8.

:D Nice! I can't wait to see your results, when you take this for a swim.

What hackle did you use? It looks really nice, with all the mottling.
