Scott:  It isn't the beauty of your fly that draws me too it, it's it's absolute sensibility as a fisher.  I really appreciate this variation of one of my favorite patterns.  I might have considered a more webby start to your body hackle (like some classic Spey flies) and a paler more translucent body dubbing.  Just thinkin.  Great tying as usual
