    The Shade is an impressionistic dry fly pattern, which is equally at home on moving and still water. Controlled Chaos at its most expressive ;-)


    Hook: Grip 147323BL #14
    Thread: Benecchi 12/0, tobacco
    Tail: Snowshoe hare, dyed dark brown
    Body/head: Dubbing brush, olive - mix of natural, synthetic and small quantity of deer hair (or dubbing of your choice)
    Wing: Snowshoe hare, dyed dark brown - two or three bunches, depending on shank length

    Note: A snowshoe take on the Hedgehog design. Neigh unsinkable.
