Scott: I've tied and fished the Mustad 9671 all my flyfishing life. Your fly is truly a hook to dressing marriage made in heaven. Exceptional attention to detail on a perfectly sensible design. In the short time I've taken to write this, in the back of my mind I've run through so many instances when/where this pattern would have been the cat's meow

Beautiful pattern for when a dark fly is needed. Well crafted and looks like a winner.
