OK, Got the Silver Pheasant collar deal, my mistake. If you take off the Amherst and jungle cock cheeks you ultimately change the fly. Yours may even catch more fish. Who knows.
Is this original pattern shown tied by Charlie a good producer in July and August when the normal working size is #6s through #12s depending upon the conditions? Or do you think they produce best as larger flies, from #4s down?
Any first hand experience with this pattern tied on #8s??
