Neat Fly. I'll bet the wing looks very realistic from below. Will it withstand a few fish? I very much like the body concept and your use of markers and flexament to finish it. Gonzo's book led me to try flexament, and it's become a necessity on my table.

Thanks Martin. This fly is very durable . I first tied it for rainbows and caught just as many warmwater fish as trout . Yes flexament makes the wing material tuff and also bouyant.

I like that! I like the balled up hair body, and the homemade wing material. Very cool. LOVE that kind of creativity.

Thanks Paul and Aaron. I got a couple hundred trout last winter in my bass pond and found I had a caddis hatch going on and these farm raised fish knew what to do with them . They would hardly take any other offering with so much natural food so I came up with this pattern.
