Superb. Makes me start daydreaming about some tough trout on Spring Creek. This fly would give me a good chance of fooling them.

Wonderfully "fishy" pattern.

Thanks Scott.

Has all of the emerger triggers combined. Thank you, Scott.

Scott, I've always liked this pattern and you've really nailed it.
