I just ran across it today and have to give it a try...

I haven't. In that size it looks like it would make a great Stillwater pattern.

I have not. Definitely worth a try though.

May experiment with some color variations.

Sometimes I think you can read my mind Bill. That was my first thought, for a variation.

Marvelous.

Today I am adding a Hydropsyche tied on a Mustad 37160 #16. It has a couple of turns of Root Beer Krystal Flash just before the Pheasant.
