 Dale seems to enjoy a good trout dry so thought I show what I use. May not be perfect as to pattern or proportion but man do they catch fish. As always comments welcome.

Hi Stephen

Thanks! Your dries look good. And it's great to hear that you use them. A tug is good, seeing a trout materialized out of the water netherworld to sip a dry is better.
Geert does love dry flies. That was all he ate when he visited us.
HAhahaha mon Ami.

Thanks guys. Sorry for the crappy pic. I have a habit of mixing up the wings and bodies of different flies to see what I come up with. The fish dont seem to mind
