Here is a size 4 I tied yesterday. It is heavily influenced by dgotz, and also Dale Darling (B.B.). It has several imperfections, but was tied for fishing so it is not a huge deal. I fished it a couple of hours ago, and was very impressed when I caught four smallmouth bass and then broke off the fifth, all in under an hour. Once I figured out where the fish were, I was catching one every other cast.

Here is the fly, dry and wet. Attached File  FC215376-F8F5-419D-9C68-929DABB1398B.jpeg   185.19K   79 downloadsAttached File  25AA4274-4314-43EF-B82D-D430E2E01072.jpeg   26.06K   84 downloads

I will definitely fish more classics in the future.
