My jaw dropped open when I saw the photo. :o

Remarkable. In every detail...


Question - What is the dark thorax?

Ray,
Thanks for the kind words. The hackle has a dark center section that creates the effect.

Regards,
Scott

A really nice interpretation, Scott. I've always tied it with a darker ginger hackle, but your lighter version looks more buggy to me.

Here's a link to a previous thread along similar lines ... http://www.flymphforum.com/viewtopic.ph ... it=Cinberg
In ancient times, cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this.

Nice one Scott, I've always been a fan of this pattern, much like a jingler with catskill proportions. I too tie it like Bill with a darker ginger hackle, but am also a fan of the lighter hackle :)
If anyone is interested in a bit more info on the fly, there's a long thread on the sparsegreymatter forum worth a read.
