Yeah, nice looking flies. I'd be interested to know how you do with them. In my travels this summer purple was quite the rage in Oregon.

I have been using purple patterns since some older gentleman gave me some purple RAM Caddis on the Roaring Fork in CO in 1975...Now I am as old as he was....:surprise:
