This is tied on a #17, 70D olive UTC thread for body and counter ribbed with orange silk, hackle - starling. This is described in Sylvester Nemes's book Soft-hackled fly imitations for a baetis. I did modify the fly by adding a mole/hare's ear blend dubbing for the thorax.

I can see the photo (which is very good) and the fly (which is also very good).
In ancient times, cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this.

All I see is the familiar "bar" where the photo should be.....

Fish when you can, not when you should! Anything short of this is just a disaster.

thats a BEAUTY !!
Two questions: what make hook is that, and which part of the starling did the feather come from? I really like the fuzzy herls.....

Dana,

The hook is a Paxipa hook and a friend of mine gave me those after visiting Japan. Unfortunately, I have not been able to find more of them and I am down to my last 4. The feathers I use are from the leading wing edge/covert.
