Default Re: Mayfly Drake Fly Swap

This is my submission for this swap. A variation of the Clouser Green Drake. I did not have a light ginger cape for the rear hackle wraps, so I substituted a dirty cream.

Recipe:
Size 10 Allen Fly fishing Dry Fly Hook
Tail: Moose body
Dub: Yellow Antron
Rear Hackle: Dirty Cream
Wing: Deer Hair
Front Hackle: One ginger, one griz
Thread: 8/0 light cahill

I have tested this fly and the vast majority of the time it lands upright! These are big and meaty and according to Bob Clouser the smallmouth love em!

Enjoy.
