Mike, I know you have mentioned the wing length advice being shorter, much appreciated, but sometimes I feel lucky to simply get the wings positioned inline and as low as possible and shorter than those on this fly. And then I tie the feathers off and somehow they are long again! Practice, practice, practice. Tied another similar one today and eventually realized I had 10 thumbs!
Tom, interesting advice on trying green for fall steelies. I will definitely look into what you suggested and give it a go.
Thanks to both of you!!
