I’ve been fooling around with a few of these flies. They are dead simple to tie and at this time of the year they seem to be working great. I had a few takers on this one today. I’m not sure why I didn’t tie these before now, but it look like they found a home in my dry fly box.


Sulfurs look promising as well tied up by Steve Williams hosted on Hans Page.
