Should work now.

What I'd like to know is how the flies work in that hatch ? They look awesome ! But they're also something I would not have thought of.

The tails are natural golden pheasant tippets dyed green.  They come out a little more olive.  

 

Dave, I'm a big wet fly guy. Its just the style I have fished for years and am most comfortable with.  I usually, not always for sure, can figure some pattern triggers to add. I haven't fished Iso much, being a west coast guy.  Going to the Catskills in October so this is one of the patterns I'm taking.  I've used the GP tippets for tails on other nymph species that have distinct banding on the end of the tail and have had very good response with them.  Iso either crawl or swim to water's edge to hatch.  I hope the fish like the swimming one's  smile.png
