I go out for a couple of hours for lunch with an old fly fishing friend and miss all this fun.....
Just super Jim. Seeing these flies has been one hell of a ride...and I love every minute.
Sure hope the financing gets approved for what's coming next soon because I sure can't wait.

I think the word in the original text is actually "superincumbent", hyphenated. It means "lying or resting on something else". I looked up "recumbent", and it turns out to mean "lying totally flat". More or less the same thing in the context of this fly. I sure as hell don't talk like that.
So the wing should hug the body in this case. Or flow more or less paralel, I suppose. More thread wraps at the head would have made that happen. I have never dressed the Three Graces yet, but in my head, the Euphrosyne looks like a very slim low rider, much like the Finnish classics that were used for harling. Dressing the wing like that would give a fly with a wing that doesn't curve in the water. It would just wave. Much like hair wings do.
