Fail-me-never...

I often tie it with a few fibers of dark turkey, or mallard, and kori up top...

Great rod!!
I have fished this rod extensively the past few years with scandi heads in the 34' to 39' range. For the most part, these were older Guidline 3D heads of varying densities/sink...

Looks really good to me Adrian.

Great fly. Agree with Mike on a slightly shorter wing.
Bob Ververka's green heron is a great pattern to swing also.
