Very nice!  I am impressed with how UV coating has changed the look of flies in the last few years.  Can't wait to get one of those wet.

And mine hit the snail mail trail today. I stuck an extra Klinkhammer dry on with each of my Perdigons. The Klinkhammer will NOT float the nymph as an indicator. It is more of a delicate dry that those who've used mine say is loved by brook trout in particular because of the way it sits in the water.

Vicrider tied two flies for us, I agree that I think the Klinkhammer will be a hot Brookie fly.

Fly tying - The art of attaching feathers, fur, wool, and silk to a tiny hook to create artificial lures that imitate insects, a skill easily mastered by anyone who can peel a grape blindfolded with a pair of tweezers and a butter knife while wearing oven mitts.

Troutguy, what you using for material there?  Looks almost like it's some kind of tiny bubble wrap dyed chartreuse.

Vicrider I guess I could braid and crochet bubble wrap and chartreuse floss together but I use Pearl Core Braid Olive by Hareline
