    ScottP inspired me to tie some GRHE. However, I have GRHEs to last me until the end of days. So, I kicked it up a notch. I'm a sucker for two-tone subsurface patterns because.... well... with most bugs, the back is darker than the belly. So I'm using Scud Back in the 1/8 inch width size to tie GRHE with a darker and shiny back.

    I've used this approach on other patterns but not a GRHE. I'll tied them in a multitude of color combinations. For this one, I used natural Hares Ear dubbing (Hareline) with an olive colored Scud Back.

    Olive is most always good. I also like reddish brown and black.
    Especially in subsurface patterns.

    Although the GRHE is a favorite, I have to swim against the current and my favorite is still the Olive Bugger, followed with the two above colors.

    Good looking fly. However, did not see any fish teeth marks on it. :)

    I tie my patterns so well that they can be chewed on at a constant rate and still maintain their original appearance. :D

    Or maybe those Oregon fish have dentures. :)
