I have a dozen of these. A couple are yellow instead of green in photos. They are tied on straight eye, #14, TMC200R hook... Kinda of like a Elk Hair Caddis without the Elk Hair?

Joseph - They're called crackleback flies.

I understand you don't have to know the name of flies for them to catch fish....

And this is often a place you can find things. Some sharp guys on here, present company excepted.
