Here is the Copper King, a classic wingless wet. It's a variation as I added a hare's mask thorax. The pattern is in the database along with instructions, somehow the link didn't appear and the photo was not in the database listing.

I can just barely make out the picture. Why don't you send me a dozen of them so I can get a better look?

I'll be making a few of those tonight...looks great.
There is three times as much water on Earth as there is land. Any fool can see, God intended man to fish three times as much as he works.

Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day.

I'm interested in tying and trying this pattern on a lake I fish each year that we primarily use traditional wet patterns on. Great fly.
