    I like this. What's the wing material?
    I'm using the free trial 45-day AOL internet 9.0...and I can't get the picture quality quite what it should be.

    cm, I can't speak for Jesse, but I usually tie this fly with pheasant tail fibers for the wing. I like to fish it alone or, tied on a standard wet fly hook, under a caddis dry fly like a stimulator. Most of the strikes happen as it starts to swing up as the line draws tight.

    Thanks for the info. I thought they looked like pheasant tail fibers, but wasn't sure. I just now noticed the name of the fly. Something about this style of fly that I really like. Reminds me of a streamer that Bob Triggs ties up for SRCs...of which I've tied quite a few but haven't fished any yet.
