I’ve tied them with wings of fox squirrel tail, too, but I really like the look of the grey.

Swapped out the dyed grizzly front shoulder for the grouse, which makes for a different look (tried partridge first but did not like the effect).

thread - UTC 70 woodduck
rib - small wire gold
body - dubbing squirrel/hare’s ear
hackle - grizzly dyed golden olive (4 Tsp Rit Golden Yellow, 1 Tsp Rit Camel)

2nd shoulder - sharptail grouse dyed golden olive

Regards,
Scott

Gotta get back to sea regardless of the broken ribs. Season is coming to an end.

That's what I'm talking about, I like that hook a lot. Easy access for tyer and fish, lightweight, really nice emergers there @Sandan

I'll bet the bourbon hits the spot, too

Thanks @chugbug27. They were actually a pretty easy tie. A necessity when the bourbon is on the bench.
