OK, so I didn't tie these and I don't have the recipe, but they look pretty good
. They're from the Orvis shop in Manchester, VT. I've tried the pink one a few times and had some sunfish nipping at it but haven't gotten a chance to cast it to an active largemouth yet. The wings do create some problems: they make a sound similar to having weeds on the hook, they limit the casting range a bit and they tend to twist the line. But they look awesome when the fly is on the water
. I'm guessing that the body profile is more important anyway, so I might decide to trim the wings partially or completely depending on how the fly performs.
