Exceptional! - both pattern and photos. Thanks for adding the "dunkin'" photos.
Absolutely nothing against this type of fly, but it reminds me of a kid wearing his hat backwards; doesn't look like he knows which way he's going. ;)
I've never tied or fished this type of fly, but it looks darn interesting.

Bill - I sent Misako an E-mail, with a link to this post, in hopes she would chime in. I would love to hear about her experience fishing these flies. I am finding them very intriguing at the moment. Chris's DVD has created a monster. :D :lol: :lol: :lol:

Ray, beautiful fly & photos. Sorta makes a good case for Leisenring's hackling method as well, the hackle locked (spring loaded) perpendicular to the hook shank, with thread wraps passed through. Yet I continue to see the tendency to apply the hackle last, tied in by the tip & lashed back against the body -- an inferior method, allowing the least hackle movement.

Wow Ray, what a stunning sequence of photos, so telling! You should write an article and get these published imho...
Impeccable tying as always :D

Thanks Mate. It is great to see your post. Are you guys heading into summer now? You been doing any fishing lately?

Yup, summer is well and truly here my friend. Haven't been doing much fishing due to a bathroom renovation, that's behind us now so I'll hopefully her to harass some trout shortly.
Btw I'm serious this would make an amazing article in a fly fishing/fly tying mag, you should seriously consider it...

I just sent Chris some more silk cord treated with persimmon juice. It's an interesting process. I dip the cord in the juice and let it dry in the sun. Sunlight causes the treated cord to darken. Each subsequent dip builds up another layer on the cord; stiffening and waterproofing it. The Japanese actually made raincoats out of paper treated with persimmon juice.

Bill, I'm impressed. You are way out there, with knowledge 'normal people' rarely get in touch with.
Could this be the'Famous Blue Raincoat'?
