Harry Murray's mash up of the Pheasant Tail, Hare's Ear and Zug Bug. Change colors as your mood strikes you; tie it up and down the size scale for all kinds of fish. Most pics I've seen use a trimmed mallard flank wing pad, like the Zug Bug, which I really hate (trimmed wing, not the fly); found some feathers on the back of the bird, around the shoulder blades, that I can use untrimmed. Amount of difference this makes? somewhere around zero.

I can honestly say that your flies are a welcome addition to the site. Thanks
