Morning Glory

The rivers are down, so the fishing around here is not only unproductive, but verboten. Hence, time at the vise. As soon as the waters open and the runs are in, here's what will be waiting for them.

It's called the "Morning Glory," and I learned it from seeing one of Aurele Daigle's ties. His has a Mtn. Goat (Polar sub) wing, but I just got a bunch of Arctic Fox, and I really like it! =) The recipe:

Hook: Bartleet (this is a #6)
Thread: Red 8/0
Tail: GP crest, dyed red
Body: Chartreuse floss and red dubb
Rib: Silver oval
Hackle: Grey spey hackle, palmered over front half
Collar: Chartreuse schlappen
Wing: White hair (PB, fox, calf, etc.)

Hope it is productive for you!
