    this fly has accounted for the majority of my winter fish over the last few years... it is hard to see in the photo, but in the water the fly has a slim teardrop shape with the hackle tips extending out of the fat part of the teardrop. The fly is guinea over blue over purple over black.

    When do you tie the tips in? That is, what are they sandwiched between if anything? I dig the mechanical pencil.
