Nice fly, nicer fish, nicest pizza. Your fly is interesting. It has a spun hair collar/head like a skater, but you trimmed the tips more like hackle than a wing. So, can I assume you fish it damp?

Great pie! They fly and fish aren't so bad either.

yes, the hook is heavier so it sinks and i trimmed back the hair some for a buggier look, that was after 3 fish had chomped it..

Good fish there Paul !!

Me too! I fish a lot of small simple flies like that. Curious to see the build.

Thx

I make these up as i go...i am a tinkerer LOL..

This one is with a bright green rear tag...i.e. green butt skunk but a tad smaller...a red tail (pheasant) black polar body with copper wire to hold it in...the head is moose that i cut and trim and put in a dubbing loop......i wrapped it forward holding back the hairs as best you can...and then trimmed it down some...i ended up trimming a few more of the moose off before i fished it..but otherwise it's a really simple fly..
Up to this point i was convinced a white wing was the ticket and have a half a box full of those...this time nothing touched them..but loved the bug!!!

We learn each time we step into a river hopefully!!

cool fly

That thing is as buggy as they come. I never thought to try putting moose hair in a dubbing loop....

Well, did you tie it as a salmon fly? Or a steelhead fly? Or a bass fly?

Maybe a trout or a catfish in its future?
