This fly is from the cache on RockyMountainFly.com. I’ve been playing with some cool articulated stones lately, but I really like the straight forward approach to this pattern. I much prefer the look and ease of tying in the thin skin over feather slips. JD Miller does a great job with this pattern. Enjoy.
