Re: Herbert Miner Hen Neck - Medium Brown Dun

Ray, I've been using Hebert Minor hen necks for years. They were suggested by our mutual friend, Jim Slattery way back when. The colors are superb and quite varied. I can always find just the right feather with my supply of Hebert Minor hen necks. Your's, by the way is gorgeous.

Re: Where have all the Soft Hackle Tiers gone?

Dana, Would love to see some of the "local" patterns that have local names. They may translate well to our local streams. My favorite fly of all time is Baillie's Black Spider (Stewart's) in size 14. I've had West Slope Cutthroat take that wee fly when there was an active October Caddis hatch going ...

Re: Nothing special, back to basics...

Lovely wee fly. Well executed, imitative of so many bugs in our local waters. Going to have to get Vickie tying a few of these. Well done.
