    Hans, The more I see this pattern the better I like it. Don't get me wrong, I liked it from the beginning too, but I'm starting to wish I had some Muskox hair.

    We've seen the Oxie, the Oxie Spider, when do we get to see the Oxie Moron. ;)

    I'm sure there's an Oxie Contin in there somewhere as well, but you'd probably need a prescription to tie that one.

    I've tied a similar fly in the past with a strand or two of horse tail as the abdomen. Horse tail hair is a lot easier to get than musk ox.

    Usually tied it smaller to imitate emerging chironomids.

    Can't you use plain ol' moose mane hair instead of Musk Ox?

    Gene,

    You are missing the point. Have you seen moose mane come out like this?

    So it's the color that's different and/or the texture of the hair? I really can't tell due to the clear coat.

    Easier to see on this pattern. Look closely - this is a single strand of hair, yet it shows up looking like two parallel strands.
