    Finished this one last night, been too crapy out to fish so tying's the next best thing... It's Kelson's
    version, but my hackle (black pheasant rump) was a little short so I used a teal throat to lengthen it, so now it's a variant. I wanted a long sleek look, so I used a Alec Jackson 1.5 hook and shortened it a little bit. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out, hope you like it.....

    really cool how it's translucent over the wing, one of my favorites so far from you Mark.
    Now if we could just get you to post them in the right sub-forum;)

    Exceptional. What a nice "flow" it has. Looks like it is moving through the water.
