Killer Mayfly

Recommended Posts

Does your thin skin have a backing? Some include a stiffer backing for easier cutting. I doubt that's it but just throwing it out there.

Though your fly is not what you want, it is sure to produce under the right conditions. Yours is a good deal brighter green, and I think you want a little more natural muted olive color overall.

I agree to use something from the turkey for a wing case. I like darker wing cases for contrast on flies like this.

Actually the water I'm gonna fish is a bit muddy right now, so actually they aren't hitting the natural colors too often. The brighter helps them see it I think... at least that was the case when I went out last.
