The original hairwing pattern of this Scottish classic is a terrific catcher.  In this case I thought I'd use the under utilized lower section of goose shoulders that often have wispy ends.  They would be perfect as tails in only the longest of dressings.  Here I choose to give them a shot as wings.  I anticipate that it would show well in slower/still waters, allowing the material to sway enticingly.  One pic dry and another after a visit to the faucet.  Not the prettiest of flies, but worth a look and a thought.  Watcha think?

I agree with Dave and Scott Gotz. The start of a rock and roll song?

Fuzziness in flies has always been something that catches my eye and yours were some of the best Dave!


Happy Trails!
