The lighter one used reddish floss and hackles and the tail and wing were a lighter almost a ginger and cinnamon look.
Love this fly. I started the brookie season with this fly in a number 12 and 14 and found it very productive in both colors. It has taken most of the fish so far this season . Can't wait for the Mayfly to hatch which seems to be a couple of weeks later this year, but until then, the Dark Montreal works for me.
