all tied up, actually I had to tie 14 cuz the first two I wrapped the wire over the back wing. pretty sure this would make the fly a little more durable, but, not sure if this will affect the flies effectiveness or not, but, since I have not tried it yet, I went back to the original that I know works.

The SBS is here: Mallard and Peacock Nymph SBS

I fish this either on a sinking line or on a floating line generally down about 2 to 4 feet. When fishing, impart a little action to it, i.e. from your tube or boat, or shore, cast it out, let it sink a little and then bring it back in a couple 2 inch strips at a time, followed by a couple second pause. I like to also fish it right at the edges of weed beds where they drop off to deeper water. This fly works during both damsel and baetis hatches.

I'll make some tags and get these in the mail on Monday or Tuesday.

Unfortunately I haven't started to tie either The Nymphs or The Dries as I've been interstate where all the Floods have been,what a mess,helping to muster a mate's cattle among the Mozzies & Sandflies in heat ranging from 38 to 41 C,so I am pretty burnt & covered in bites.
Hopefully I can complete them in the next week so I can get them away.
Brian.

It looks like Garcia's Rojo midge tied on a nymph hook.

Thanks AJ. I almost called it "Page 29" which is where I saw it in a FF magazine.
