That Madison Cabbage looks great, as does the Wilted Spinach. Both will fish well, but I would be tying on that Cabbage first. Well done, John.

JohnP, although I had a number of these flies tied by Jeff Smith (thanks Jeff) I never got a chance to tie one on. I'll remedy that in coming weeks and I know others did well with the pattern during the gathering, so I'm expecting good results in Central PA.
