The bronze mallard looks great against the gold body and tippet tail.

Stylish pattern. ;)

Scott,
Sawada as in Ken Sawada? I haven't gone back into his excellent book to see but I suspect that I will find it there! Your pattern above is excellent as always! I love the dark mallard over the gold body and ginger hackle!

Fish when you can, not when you should! Anything short of this is just a disaster.

Doug,

That's correct; Ken Sawada. Lots of neat flies on his website.
