okay thanks

If you have not talked to West Laramie Fly Shop, I will be glad to call them and check with two real serious fishing & tying friends in Albany County. Seems like least I can do given all the helpful answers you regularly provide.

Fravel’s Fancy

Usually Tied on 12 to 16 hook. Tie in grizzly hackle for tail. Next choose another grizzly hackle and wrap two or three turns at the start of bend of hook. Wrap two peacock herls ( with small wire optional) several times to give tit a full body. Tie in another grizzly hackle and wrap two or three times in front of the peacock. Tie off your head and your done.

Another note about the size of the hackle. Usually the the back hackle was just larger than the hook bend and the front hackle was a size or two larger. Hope this helps.

contact South creek limited.  Mike Clark is well connected.  I bet AK Best or Ed Engle might know.  Mike fishes with Geirach and those guys.

here is the response i received

Hello Norm,

  Mike has been living and fishing in Colorado for over 68 years and unfortunately, he has never heard of/seen this fly.  We are custom bamboo fly rod makers here and do not tie flies, so we may not be in-the-know like a career fly tier.

 Sorry we’re not able to help you,

Kathy

 

exactly as i expected
