Hook: 16 Dry
Underbody: Olive Green UTC 70
Body: Black Horse Hair
Hackle: Whiting Amer. Rooster Cape Grizzly/Yellow

The second fly needed to have a smoother underbody of thread, maybe then the horse hair would have laid down tighter and smoother... <_<

Those are really sweet Bruce. I particularly like the last one. Could you put small walk through on that dragon flie up for me. That is something I really want to tie. I see a lot of large bass taking those from the surface where I live and do not have a pattern or walk through in any of my books.
