No-name green butt heavily borrowing from The Psychedelic Green Butt Skunk by Mr. David Burns...
Some mistakes here and there; Tinsels on a floss body tend to slip around, specially with a tapered body going forward. The black dye I have is a little weak and so the hackle is rather muted and not of the best shape for the purpose. Toppings are about as straight as I've ever found - could be better though. It is what it is and not too horrendous though.
Gary Grant's Black Dragon Dee Wing:
Because I don't always have all the materials I can't/don't follow very many pattern - this one is as close as it gets.
Thank you all.
The dee really is a beautiful dressing as per the originator and even when half-assed like I did here, it still manages to be pleasing to the eye. I'm looking forward though, anticipating late November and swinging the two for steelhead.
I really love the wings you are makin these days. so many pieces. love this underwing and while you think the hackle falls short, I think less than perfect hackles add a certain fishiness to a fly. I have really loved using my own birds feathers and all the odd variations involved in the barbs and such. I don't usually like toppings on flies, but it fits this fly. really lovely dressing. If you make it out west, we need to wet a line.
