That has POP !!
You can't go wrong with this style of fly , it has flow and a great profile ... got to love the tented GP rump !!
This will find a mid-swing taker ... nice work !!

I really dig this one! Very eye (and fish!) catching.

Where did you score the heron hackle?

Thanks Mike & Aldo! I'm still searching my tying desk for scraps of heron :chuckle: But I have an order of "legal" heron coming from CTFC that should arrive any day.

The wing marrying into the heron is superb! And that copper/rusty shoulder is killer!

I gotta get off this keyboard and get to tying!!!
