Scott - Your tutorials are top notch! You are a gifted tier, photographer, and teacher. I always appreciate the time and effort you put into these posts.

This is a Don Bastian patten? Amazing! I am a Huge fan of Don Bastian's fly tying, from his Bergman series and his work in Forgotten Patterns. I am surprised to see one of his patterns using foam, as a material.

Very "fishy" fly, by the way (sincere compliment). I'd love to watch this fly drift downstream...anticipating a strike at any second.

Don ties all kinds of fish catching patterns, several of which use foam. He is best known for his classic wet flies, but his commercial dries and Orvis patterns like this one are all superior.
