    A nice pattern indeed. Elegant proportions. Are the cheeks golden or amherst? They look a bit red.

    It is tough to tell but I would agree and say Amherst, probably the feathers above the tippet crest? Aren't they called toppings?

    Yes, they are toppings. Either way, I agree, it has a nice effect.

    Amhearst for the cheeks.

    Thanks for the compliments. I posted it because of the thread on purple flies.

    I will see if steelhead like it this coming spring.
