That's a great looking streamer! Well done...looks like a great night fly, I've never fished the white version enough to have an opinion, although it is reported to be a good night fly.

Love it! Really nice job, what's the hook?

Janne, it's a good-looking fly for sure... and I tend to think along the lines of Tim's comment about being a perfect night fly... that said, I have a soft-spot in my heart for the white body version, hoping that one of those West Branch Delaware River browns will slam it, thinking it's sawbelly that came over/through the Cannonsville Dam...

Nice tie... ;)

Thanks my friends:).
I think the hook is an old Partridge hook, I bought it from a company here in Sweden but the owner wasn´t sure about the brand but he thought it was a Partridge hook.
Yes I was thinking of fishing this fly at night.

Wow! That is a handsome pattern. I got to add a few of these to my box for testing. They will be effective, no doubt about it.

I really like that fly. Thanks for sharing it. I wonder if the black bass would like it here? :D

Thanks for the kind words about my fly.
I´m not much of a "streamer fisherman" but I will give it a go this summer. I´ll let you know if I catch anything ;) .
