Found the recipe for this killer fly on marty's HMH section, thanks Marty! Imagine that the head is red. The die in my red marker separates to create a puke green so I need to get to the store and grab a red sharpie. Also imagine the tail crest is much longer than it is.

Thanks, The front half is supposed to be red mylar over yellow floss. I dont have red mylar so I went with gold flat tinsel over claret floss

Excellent work, great lines. Tail is a little weak, other than that its a great looking fly. The front tinsel is orange. Silver, or copper would be a good sub.

I would redo the tail if I could. Its my biggest weakness on dees. I always tie them in much longer then I go no way thats too long then end up regretting it. Burnt goose is really such an amazing sub if split well.

I meant I orginally had it tied in much longer but it looks so out of proportion without any other materials on the hook that I end up shortening it every time only to regret it after its too late to change.
