Poor quality materials and tools are destined to discourage beginner and experienced tiers and cause greater expense when the time comes to replace them.

Wow, never seen a fly like that before but look effective.

Is that a generic or imitative pattern. Looks very nice.

Yes. 

 

I fish these during sulfur hatches on TN tailwaters.  Sulfurs are pretty yellow there (more orange-ish in other places).  I fish these both as a dropper on a dry fly and swung on a down and across presentation.  The beauty of soft hackles is there's almost no wrong way to fish them.

Hi Cream,

What did you use for the body, pale yellow thread?
