    Davy Wotton pattern; his version's tied hackle-stacker fashion. Cool looking wing; I'd expect it to have a short life intact, although chewed and blown out it'll probably still be effective.

    hook - Dai Riki 320 #16
    thread - UTC 70 tan
    abdomen - dubbing tan rabbit
    wing - deer hair folded
    hackle - barred cream


    mash barb, start thread

    tie in some deer hair on near side of hook

    twist then fold (I used a needle) and tie down on far side; trim butts and smooth

    Good-looking pattern, Scott. Who cares if it short-lived? Gives us a reason to tie more. This one is on my list for today (between innings of the CWS games.). Tied a couple; fairly straight=forward & perfect for a stream I'll visit next week. Thanks for the post!
