Re: (Atherton's) Dark Flymph

Thanks, guys. Boy Doug, you sure know how to polish a "like". :D Atherton had some great stuff. Too bad he left so soon. I will try some Light nymphs too. Thanks.

Re: Black Caddis (and a couple variations)

Love the colors you chose Ray! Should be a great pattern for you. It is very similar to Syl Nemes' "Dean's Black" pattern. Peacock abdomen, silver rib, black wool thorax and partridge dyed dun hackle. Great minds think alike!

Re: Blue Olive Spider

I don't mind given you a LYFT! :)

I have a couple boxes of the 7947's. The shape is similar, but the Gaelic definitely has a more refined figure.

Re: Dark Pupa (muskrat seal and teal)

Beautiful! I can see a lot of engineer thinking in this design. Can't beat those spectral dubbing mixes.

Re: A thank you Spider

I have never heard of part of a wing feather referred to as herl but Bill is correct.

Shows how much I use them.

If someone said to me "turkey herl" I would immediately think the barbs of a tail feather.
