Nice looking tie Henrik. I like the seals fur it really makes the pattern. Is the tail and wing bleached elk?

 

Yes, both are bleached elk, not tied in together to avoid bulk or thread showing at tail.

Thanks! Blue has been a good prince nymph color for me lately. This is a little more stoneflyish, which are usually good winteritme here

 

I think those might catch some steelhead out of the Lake Erie tribs.

Try Davie McPhails zonker fry pattern Islander727,he has a sbs on youtube. It is by far my most productive fly pattern period. Nice tie, looks like a classic pike color combo in my eyes :P
