    Thought I share this you all, just tied it up last week and used on the Ronde and the Snake. I was rewarded with a couple fish. Looks great in the water with the hackle change from green to blue when there is sun on the water.

    Tight Lines,

    That is nice!

    Guessing that some part of a peacock ends up on the fly as the hackle?

    DD,

    I used peacock breast feather for the hackle.

    Cougar97, thanks for posting the photo again. I printed it out this time and saved it to my album. I'm finally read to attempt to do it justice tying. If I think my first attemts are photo worthy I'll let you know.

    Did you use polar bear or some such substitute for the top wing?
    Nice pattern!

    SW,

    Yes this version has Polar Bear, still have a little left! I have used both Bronze Mallard or Gadwall flank feathers as well for the wing, all have found fish this year on the Ronde and Snake.

    Lonewolve,

    Dubbing is 2/3 Ice dub blue steelie, and 1/3 ice dub peacock black.

    Cougar, I finally got my ice dub blue steelie today. That was keeping me from trying to tie some up. If they look good I'll tell everyone about the pattern, source and such. If they look like my normal balls of fur, feathers and sparkly crap I'll deny knowing what they are called. I think that your patterns colors are great. Thanks again.
