for Dawn and Dusk - The Black and Purple pattern hands down!

You can tie this lots of ways but my two favorites are:
1) Like a snake fly w/ spun deerhair head and splayed black and purple hackles - VERY effective as the splayed feathers pulse on the retrieve.

2) Flatwing like above - I like the supple wiggle of the flatwing hackles and palmered schlappen head.
