So I didn't have the right colors of Orange and as usual I forgot something (JC sides). I'm still struggling with tails and used a weird iron but am overall pretty happy with the outcome, I hope the fish agree!

I'm with Andrew on this... such a sweet tie, Josh. What the heck? How do you forget the JC?! Just jesting, my friend...I have forgotten a few things on a fly or two. But I do gotta say, I was fishing this pattern the other day in the high off-color flows...and while the orange was looking good, it was the jungle cock that had me smiling. I think this is pattern would work for a lot of variable conditions here in the Northwest...sunny, dark, off color, slow or fast flows.I like that iron. I think if we were to show most of our modern spey irons to the originators of these patterns they would think they look wierd.
I like how you did the wing. I think the fish will love this fly.
