    Kelvin, how does a guy talk you out of a half dozen of number one? I'll give you a report. I think those all look good, but the first just screams I'm buggy come over here and eat me.

    Interesting, I like the foam extended body on that one.

    I have used John Barrs Vis A-dun. I noticed these Large mayflies in early fall on the river in my back yard, and I had nothing to match a may fly that big. I looked in Mr Barrs book for a may fly pattern and found his Vis A dun (Barr Flies chapter 14 Page 103). This fly worked well for me. I like the look of the foam Idylwilde fly, and the others posted. A fun hatch to fish for sure.
