Found this on Hans Weilenmann's site. Tied the wing a bit fuller than the original to improve visibility (for me).


hook – Dai Riki 320 #14
thread - Danville 6/0 brown
abdomen - Zelon dubbing hydropsyche
thorax - dubbing hot orange
hackle - dun CdC/partridge
wing - Congo Hair white

Regards,
Scott

Scott - Gorgeous pattern. It straddles the line between an emerger and dry fly. Sort of a damp dry, if you will. I will be adding some of these to my fly box. Well done, as always.

PS - I'll incorporate your fuller "improved visibility" wing design. I could certainly use the help.

I can see that being very effective, Scott. Beautifully tied as always.
In ancient times, cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this.
