Hi Boynabubble, Nice stone. One thing I do with mine for durability is to use thin leather, nymph skin, or an over lay of ziplock back or scud back to add durability to the wing case. I have found that the fish really like to chew them up and the feather wing case fails and comes apart.

 

Cheers, Futzer.

Hey Futzer,

Thanks for the tip! I tie a lot of my nymphs with thin skin, but on this particular nymph I liked the softer look of the feather. This was just kind of a prototype of sorts, when I tie a few more for my box, I'll use your advice and tie them with thin skin and maybe even some flash. Thanks for checking out my pattern!
