I like the use of the use of the tippet for the tail. Nice looking general purpose fly.
Love both fly fishing and fly tying, been doing it for a while
But not much good at either

Wow Alan! They are little soft-hackled bombers! I am with Ray and the others on this one! I have GOT to get this one underway! Have you swung this one in front of your friends under the waters surface?
Simply wonderful! Please keep creating and renewing!
