This was a really fun tie. I have always feared topping wings, as every one I have tied have turned out terrible. Because of this, I was hesitant to try another quite yet, but I am glad I did, because this on worked out nicely.

Thank you Geert! This is one of the more challenging flies I have tied yet, with the body segments and topping wing. I feel like the wing should have more curvature, or something. Also, the yellow hackle segment seems a little funny.
