I caught up with a snow storm of the spinners last night. I caught this one just before the spinner fall. So here is my forward hackled paradun match for this one with a simple poly wing.

I think my camera is going to die soon its very hard to get the good pictures like I use too.

This is pretty cool. It shows how nice of a color match you have, and how well your forward hackle imitates legs.

Thank you for your comment it has worked out to be a great pattern over the years. I varnished the body so the true wet color can be seen. But they are unvarnished when fished. It helps to line up the correct color hues when making a master blend. I blend the colors in a small blender in water to make a batch that matches the species on hand while it is alive. Then I have years worth of dubbing material ready too go.

That's a really neat way to match the hatch, so to speak. A lot to ask for, but have you ever considered a series of pictures for step-by-step tying of your pattern? The wet dubbing thing is ingenious, too- I've been using a coffee-grinder to blend dubbing but the color is still an educated guess.

Just for grins...my wife is looking over my shoulder as I type this, and she said 'are those 2 bugs fooling around?!' I'm not supposed to include this comment but too good to pass up.

Thank you. That is best comment ever :-)

Because this fly is being written up about in a article that is on the go right now. I have since decided to write a small book on the fly and everything need to replicate the patterns in it. It will have color matching charts with the colors WET & DRY to show the difference in what we see on the vice, and what the trout see by the dubbing fur being wet. It will completely instruction you through the fly in many series of photos. It is as easy to tie as a traditional and once you have the colors right that's all it takes. It will be very much like our traditional pattern recipe books. It will match up all the super hatch's as well as some that I have encountered that are not really important but it was a fish able hatch. I actually blend the wet color to a living sample that I have on hand. Matching to a photo is very good but all the mayflies very for area to area and may need color hue adjustments which I will instruct you through. I doubt the book would be very expensive but well see what it is some time soon.
