Very nice! I’d definitely given that a swing last weekend, had I had some in my vest.

Not sure how I missed this first time around, but it looks to be a winner. Could easily seduce eastern sulfurs too. Have you had the chance to get one wet, Bill?

Bill,

I have not fished it yet but hope to in about a week. I have no doubt it will work because the PMD Flymph I have used for years is essentially the same tie minus the tan thorax.

I love it, but my question is would the old timers have used Crystal flash ?why not a piece of stripped French braid?

I read somewhere to use muskrat fur for a shuck but the source escapes me at the moment.

Bill - Thanks for sharing the link. I've added that book to my Amazon wish list. Looks like a nice reference.
