Gorgeous flies, John: a repository or memory and anticipation.

Could you tell me what you coat the wing cases with? And is the ribbing just the tying thread? If so (and if not), what kind and size of thread is the ribbing?

Like Alex, I am quite interested in more info on this pattern. Would you please be kind enough to provide us with a profile photo of one and maybe even the recipe?

Ditto. My number one fly on the Henry's ork for the past 4-5 years. I estimate it has accounted for around 65% of the fish I've caught. I tie a half dozen about every other morning I fish.
