Sandfly,

Can't say that I have seen that fly. Probably like many of my own your friend has simply came up with a color combo and proportion that works for him. As you no doubt know the success that a fisherman may experience with a given pattern is usually related to the presentation of the fly.

I will post tomorrow the only fly that I claim as my own design. I developed it over a five year period of time while fishing primarily on spring creeks in Pennsylvania. I do not possess an unused (chewed up) example of the fly but will procure one from the vise.

P.S. I do see similarities between the ties.

Stay tuned

I used to tie a version of that fly, called a Skunk that had a white wing verus a black and didn't have the jungle cock. I found that fly to be excellent on the Kenai and along the Parks Hwy streams.
