The other day I was at the L.L. Bean store in Lebanon, NH and saw a fly there called the Overley's Spotlight Emerger, I really liked the looks of it but wasn't really hot for the parachute style so I combined the elements of it that I liked (maraibou body, sparkle shuck) with the elements of the quigley's cripple and I subbed in a snowshoe wing.

 

After I took the picture below I float tested it and didnt like how it floated so I cut down the hackle on the bottom and now it sits very nicely on the surface.

 

Its funny how the white snowshoe wing disappears against my skin. Now to tie a few more.

Retrocarp,

 

I fish these dead drift, with a Leisenring lift and swung. The pattern has lead or lead sub. lashed to the sides of the shank ( I coat with Zap-A-Gap). In still water, I strip and lift in short bursts. It really does "wobble"...biggrin.png

Stmflies - thanks... there are several stacking wizards on this forum of which you are certainly one. The more I see the more I get inspired. It is contagious.
