    I tend to ask a lot of questions. The tone of the message can really be misinterpreted on line
    I like the fly - I've not ribbed a body with thread - I like!!

    I think is a good thing to ask questions when you want to know. and the fishy style popped in my head after having a smartass conversation on facebook and reading this. I could not resist saying it. lol
    yes I love using thread as a rib when I am looking for a flat rib style fly. I don't like using tinsel that much and wire gives it a bumpy look. when I can I use thread for a rib. it gives a cool look and is everyday material.

    if you have any other questions on it just ask no worries.

    and for my dressy flies lol here you go.

    That is a very nice modern, steelhead hairwing-wet syle fly that uses pheasant rump instead of hair for the wing. One can use pheasant rump, hair, marabou, or even Krystal Flash or Flashabou for the wing on this style of fly. Heck, you could made the body from floss as you did here, chenile, Estaz (and its relatives), dubbing, wrapped quill (hackle quill or turkey or goose quill that has been split and scraped to get the pith out of it, yarn, Swiss Straw, or pretty much anything else.

    My thoughts? Hell, just toss it in a plastic box with the rest of your flies.... :D

    For Oregon, I'd tie it in purple. For some reason, the SRC in Washington like yellow patterns and the SRC in Oregon like purple or pink patterns.
