Tasty!

Your body work is exemplary. A fly like this would show every flaw, but none to be seen...

Are you filling a box with these winged wets? Any chance we could see the box when it's finished?

Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after.

Excellent tying, and photography. Can you tell us about how you fish it, and the background of the design?

Ray,

Right now they're going into a plastic food storage container; when I start packing things up for the trip out west in March, I'll get a few of those 6 compartment plastic boxes from Wally World and sort them out for fishing. I'll give them a shot on the Missouri and Beaverhead in April.

gingerdun,

I'll probably swing it thru some riffles and see if I can get a trout to take a look. Don't have any info on this particular fly, found it on Ken Sawada's site; just a variation, of which there seem to be many, on a very popular fly.

Regards,
Scott

Thanks, Scott.
Some flies are popular with trout, others with fly fishers. This looks like it might win in both categories.
