Well Don Jim. Thanks.

I don't remember this pattern. It has the very long sleek look that a few others have. Great body.

Thanks Dale. One good thing. I learned the definition of super recumbent. Who talks like that?

Weirdos like us that eventually learn the definition and use it on others. Eventually you arrive at incorrigible, a high calling required for true weirdness. If say you're gaining on it. Congrats! What's next?

Ronn I just figured the hook order to finish Bob's book and Ephermia's. When the financing gets approved I'll call.

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.

 

Cheers,

George

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.
