Thanks for the kid words. I'll post my formerly top secret "creeper" pattern now that the statute of limitations is up. It's a more evolved fly that is suitable for summer fishing not just winter dredging.
Frankly I don't fish the sandbug that much in comparison to the hours the creeper gets the swing. Based on the caliber of the friends who have also become creeper fans I am confident that it makes the cut and frankly I wouldn't be on a summer or fall steelhead river without a few in my box.
I am on the road again this week on business but should have some free time before the thaw to get this up there.
