Hello Eldi...

 

Very nice work.  

 

If this is a recreation of the original pattern designed by Ray Bergman then I would like to add some background .  There is an original pattern from Bergman which he designed in 1927 called the BASHERKILL.   

 

On page 137 of Just Fishing (Ray Bergman, 1942 ed.), he wrote, "Often in May I have been on a stream during a hatch of greenish yellow flies. The Baskerkilll serves me well under these conditions."

 

This is the recipe that I have found...

 

Tail...gold olive

body...pale olive green

wings...wood duck

hackle...same as tail

 

Ted

This was taken from the "The classic dry fly box" (I think that was the book) by Mike Valla, I got to tie some with him just a few weeks back on the WoodsTorrt in Sweden.

so i called valla and here's the story...mike saw a photo of a trout caught in the BashAkill river  a while ago and made this pattern up.   so this has nothing to do with Bergamn's BashERkill.. cool stuff
