With all that deer hair it should float very well and without any palmered hackle it will sit low in the surface film.

It has all the characteristics of a truly great Spring Creek or tailwater fly.

I am going to attempt to tie this fly today but somehow I doubt that it will look as good as Scott's!

Old 406 Kid and I could have used this pattern a couple of weeks ago when we were fishing an obscure Montana river for difficult trout. I think the low riding design would have worked better than our high riding EHC's. Thanks Scott.

As I am typing this on my laptop, on my tying desk....there in plain sight are 2 bottles of SHHAN. Good lord, I never put 2 & 2 together. Yikes! My favorite cement for tying.
