Nice fly Johnny,
I just don't know when I would fish a fly like that Green Drake, Caddis?
What do you think?
It is Purty. :lol:

You have been to a few of the places I lurk at regularly, these "kind" of flies work just fine :D .

I agree though, many of the flies in the "trout" plates certainly fit the "presentation over imitation" theory.

Just keep my #1 rule in mind...the faster the water, the dumber the trout ;) CJ

Beautiful, John!
Do you tie the wings R.Cross style and have you used 1 hackle feather on this fly?

Take care buddy

Janne,
Yes, Cross style. And the hackles [2] are from Indian necks. You can see the 2 clipped stubs poking up at the eye :roll: :lol: . This camera shows all the defects! CJ
