PT, those are incredible looking ties! I'll take a dozen or two

Would you mind sharing the recipe?
Here 'ya go:

SPLIT/ WING CASE BAETIS NYMPH

HOOK: Daiichi 1130, #16-#22, TMC 2487, #16-#22, Mustad c49s, #16-#22

THREAD: Gordon Griffith 14/0, Sheer, Gray

TAIL: Lemon Woodduck

ABDOMEN: Premo Goose Biots, Blue Winged Olive, or Olive, or Natural

RIB: Largutan, x-fine Gold wire

THORAX: Wapsi Beaver Dubbing, Dark Tan

LEGS: Lemon Wooduck

UNDER WING CASE: Wapsi, Razor Foam, Translucent Dun, 1.0 MM

OVER WING CASE: Spirit River Holographic Mylar Motion, 1/64″, Black…three strands, each side, to edge of pulled over foam, this IS tricky…patience prevails


PT/TB
