Norm, how is about the time I moved to central WA that FAOL stopped having the fishins up in Ephrata? :o

Especially nice tinsel work, Norm. The slender body should help this pattern sink quickly and fish a little more deeply.

A great looking fly! I have been out of commission for a while and did not realize there was a peacock tinsel. I will have to try it once I am off the DL.

Nice pattern, Norm……..It’ll work quite well for our Cornutas, which are just starting to show.
