That looks great for a first attempt Greg, I'm happy when mine come out looking like that now...

That giant streamer from the end of the last page is definitely awesome looking too...

Greg: Great looking Yellow Sally, I could have used those down here on the Green in July.

Enjoyed the Green drakes on the Bitterroot a few weeks back. Decided to try a dryish Irish dabbler version. The weather was seriously hot, the hatches sparse, and the fish not even taking a nymph. The thunderstorm came through with wind and rain roughing up the surface of a deep pool. Dabbler style came into its own with some nice cuts. So came up with this experimental version.

Kamasan B-170 #12
Thread: Veevus 16/0
Tail: brown pheasant tail (5-6)
rib: gold tinsel
Abd: white dubbing
palmer hackle: silver badger (Hebert-Miner)
Underwing: 3 fluorescent green CDC feathers
front hackle: 3 turns of badger
Cloak and wing: bronze mallard dyed picric

or alternate version with green french partridge front hackle

Thanks to Finneys flies for the mallard and the fluorescent CDC which is amazing.

Hugh the idea of using the three cdc plumes as the under wing is fantastic, i use it on my sunburst bumbles, i find that this traps air when pulled through the water causing a bubble trail. to tell you the truth i did not even think of trying out this method on a dabbler, you have certainly come up with a winner there.
Some more stuff on the way to you to try out and again nice flies.
tight lines

For a musky trip this weekend. First experience with CCG. First impressions are that it absolutely rocks. That being said, I'm not a big fan of the syringe. I'd much rather have a brush.
