    I like it. Must try some. It looks nearly unsinkable.

    I too was impressed with that fly, from the original tutorial. I tied up four of them so far, and I'm also anxious to see how they work.

    First try at a few mods; 1mm foam back and glued/squeezed/trimmed deer hair butts (from the wing) for the lip/forward wing

    Great job with the Screaming Banshee Scott. I like your decision to use the bleached elk hair instead of the deer hair that Charlie uses on his. I've tied up a few, still trying to figure out a better way to separate the side wings to pull the hair forward. My fingers are so big it makes it a challenge. Skating these on the Yakima this summer should be a blast.
