Great job, Scott. This fly, as I understand it, was designed as a still water pattern, but I have found that it works well even on small, moving water.
In ancient times, cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this.

Love it! A very nice impressionistic fishing fly. This could pass as a number of dietary prey (mayfly, small baitfish, damsel nymph, etc.).

Definitely a “keeper” and a lovely wee wet. ;)
