I really like that fly!!! Awesome looking. It's like a new version of a soft hackle pheasant tail fly. I have never seen a fly with pheasant tail herl used as a ribbing before, but I have a feeling I'm going to start seeing it done on some of the flies I tie.

Thanks for sharing that.

Mike, nice!

"1 pheasant tail herl"

Sort of a PT soft hackle.

On my screen, the starling almost looks like it was slightly bleached.
Nice pattern.
