    Jack, my favorite yet. The coloration is perfect. I would expect lots of fish on this fly. I would greatly appreciate it if you would post the materials list for this beauty. I have not hit the vise since adopting Fisher, my Mini Australian Shepherd. Got him out for a few hours of mooching for Chinook with Steve Knapp yesterday. This flat wing has me itching to get back to the vise. Thanks buddy. Fisher meets Flounder.jpg

    Yes Ben, it is Peacock. A dyed herl I think Olive Brown but you could use natural too. I use both.
    Fun to play around with these patterns.
    I fished them earlier today in Area 9 and caught 3 Chinook. Unfortunately, they were only 10 inches long!
