    Looks like an awesome pattern! That thing is going to ride nice and low in the back, awesome profile up front, and just enough to keep it in the surface film. Cant wait to fish this on some glassy spring creeks or lakes. TASTY!!!

    All of my ostrich is colored and set aside for intruders right now, picking some up for trout flies this week. In the meantime, I used this as inspiration for a green drake which I usually tie as a parachute, but looking forward to fishing this style more.

    Brown poly yarn, dyed green pheasant tail fibers, some light olive wire (also tied a few using a cream colored kevlar thread as rib), badger hackle, and died olive coastal deer which is from a patch with very subtle coloring, leaving the tips looking quite natural.
