A trusted friend; never found a better one.  They’re buoyant, even after they’ve been chewed on and they show up pretty well in low light.  Swapped out the quill body on the original with biot since I have some sitting here on the bench.  The shorter shank hook gives me the body of a #16 with a wider gap, which helps.


hook - WFC Model 3 #14 
thread - UTC 70 burnt orange
tail - hackle badger
abdomen - biot rust
thorax - dubbing rusty orange
wing - Congo Hair white
hackle - badger

Regards,
Scott

Sorry to hear about the loss of your stuff, flyguy638, but, holy crap, those flies are some nice work!  And the photos look good from here.
