    cabezon, Got your flies last night. Great looking stuff. Be gone till Sunday night so I'll get the pictures posted early next week.

    The other two sets are on the way so we are about ready to wrap this one up.

    You can certainly riffle hitch and skate the forward wing one, but it's actually designed to be tied on straight and fished with a standard swing as a "damp" pattern. Great follow-up if a fish rolls on a waker but doesn't take. Right in the film and some wiggle to it...
