Ken Abrames book lists it as
Tail:white bucktail, pearl flash, yellow bucktail,1 white saddle,yellow and blue fishair over that.
You tie it different than he does. That was the pattern I was going from.
If you use three, it's OK w/ me

I'm thinking about lighter shades of green and green/gold or these next mentioned colors for mine.

Mike, what about a herring green, if I can find one, over lavender or purple over yellow or a shade down of gold/green - how does that look in your mind's eye?

Dfix,
Describe "herring " green. I'm not sure what you mean by that color. The other colors you mentioned sound great.

kinda like a green/black. Spirit River makes a yak hair in what they call a herring green; I also have a neck or cape in 'furnace', which is irridescent green/black.

Yup, count me in on this. I'm really looking forward to seeing all the patterns that come out of this one.

I saw some of Tod D's work and I've got to say anyone would be lucky to get one if his entries.

Boar, you can enter twice if you really want to. :hehe:

Oh Jim, you're too kind. I'm blushing...

I've got 5 dozen with your name on them if it means getting out in that Hydrasport!

Tod, one for each rod should do.
Saquish rip+ mid-may+ a fly that looks better than the local herring = Tons-O-Fun.

Flat Wings

Hey Tod and Jim,

If I bring some flatwings to share and my 'yak, can a Joisey boy play too?

Happy New Year, Tod. Looking forward to fishing with you again, flatwings or no.

Best regards,

-Doc
