Very nice work Scott.
Is that a Ray Bergman pattern?
If so, How nice it would look on a Ray Bergman hook !!

Scott - What brand/grade grizzly hackle did you use? Is this hen hackle?

I love the overall proportions of this fly. Really nice choices and execution.

Ray,

It's from a complete hen skin I bought years ago (EBay, I think). No markings on it; think it was just a guy with a chicken. It's been great for wets and the has best feathers I've ever found for winging dries

Used up the #12s and most of the #14s; I'll be very sad when they're all gone.

Regards,
Scott
