Dan, deer hair.
Fred, you know...
Might take a week if it's hot.
Might take 3-4 if it's cool.
Haven't seen'em yet.
But I'm ready.....
Let's see some bugs guys.......

Further reflection.. it is a super easy fly, but getting the right tightness of thread around the rainey foam without cutting through, well....... some practice may be needed.
I like a heavier thread to cover more surface area, and not cut the foam like butta. Also, (sheesh) I head cement the foam for the shiney look.
In time, about 2 minutes per fly.
