Tying Instructions: This is a Dennis Potter pattern. He showed it to me at a fly tying show, and I tried it in PA and it worked great. The tinsel body really reflects light well, and the trout go nuts for it. On this example, the shuck material was given to me by Dennis, and he dyes his a custom color. The Shuck should be sparser than in the photo.
