Thinking of lemon wood duck, fishing dries this summer in Western Montana, recalling what they liked last year, and thought of this option.

 

I'd prefer orange thread, but didn't look for it with read at hand. The hackle is barred ginger; I like mixed grizzly and brown, but really liked the spade feather I found on this pelt, so used the barre hackle, too. Might be a bit light. Oh well.

 

Not very good, but knocked them out to fill boxes; tough duty any more. Geert will have to tie his own froggy green dries. HAHAHAHA!

 

Hope you're all well.

Dale

I like them Dale. I too like the looks of the multi-colored hackle. Fishy looking I think. They would work very well for our Canadian fishies
