I don't really fish shank type flies anymore but these things seriously scream at me!! I would love a material list and they will most certainly find a spot in the winter box... I hope you take that as a huge compliment as I really can't remember the last time I felt that way about this style of fly
Thanks guys, I lifted the recipe from Marty's HMH page. They are a Mike DeCoteau pattern and the material list can be found there. I have had a chance to fish these here in Michigan and they do work. Have fun w these they are an interesting shank to tie.
