Anyway, I dressed the fly with the traditional Dee throat of Jungle, But...within minutes I had pulled it out, having decided it took"away" from the rest of the fly. Let me know.
Thanks to Ronn and the gang, for letting me "invade" , hair and all , it was delightful and hope I may return.
Fly is loosely based on a famous NW pattern named the "Spawning Purple" I believe attributed to Dave McNeese or possibly John Shewey. I know these are colors that work for the Santiam river here in Oregon, regardless.

I hope we can compare tying notes or do some fishing now that you're in the neighborhood.

He riseth up Early in the Morning And Disturbeth the whole Household.
Mighty Are His Preparations.
He goeth forth full of Hope, and when the Day is Far Spent He returneth,
Smelling of Strong Drink and the Truth is not in Him.
