    Nice dressing ! I remember a pattern a fellow fisher way back in the day- (70's) used to tye an fish called a "Mover" he used more olive tones though, anyway, this kind of reminded me of that pattern with all the guinea. Again, nice bug !

    This is the fly I tyed in the virtual tying class earlier tonight. Man, how does one get used to tying in front of people??? Let alone a worldwide audience? 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.
