    The use of the springier hackle barbs makes for a "skinny" look to the Flight pattern.

    That is a unique and attractive fly. It does look fairly sparse; I'd like to give it a try on some local lakes. I don't see yellow used often.

    Many of the British and Irish wets have GP crest as the tail. Yellow hackle barbs, or GP breast feather barbs are much easier to deal with.
