    Default Looking for "Split Wing" pattern

    The guys in the fly shop in Bend, Ore showed me a "split wing" fly that they said was very, very hot there. Here's what I know but can't find a pattern to match. The back is yellow foam with black biots pulled over to form what looks like a case cracking.
    Does anybody know of a pattern?
    This fly looks awesome in person.

    Jimmie,

    When I see something like that I buy a few so I can figure the pattern out. Did you get hold of one?

    Yeah, thanks Ard. Lesson learned. I got home and wished that I would have bought a few. I'm going to follow your lead in the future.In fact there were some other flies that I wish that I had bought; "Purple Haze"; "Purple Crystal Prince"; "Batman"; and a Stonefly made with hot yellow ultra wire / brown thinskin.

    Jimmie,

    Although most patterns sold in shops are widely known there are some out there like flies of my own that are locally effective and are custom tied for a shop or a few shops in an area. This is when you run into problems when you try to look them up at home.

    The fly Purple Haze is a familiar soft hackle pattern you will be able to find it and the prince but others may be hard to find.

    That's the one Mark. Really appreciate it. Thanks.
    Now to tie up a bunch. They are awesome looking in a #16.

    Rather than coc-de-leon tail and legs, the flies that I saw were pheasant tail fibers (mallard dyed wood duck would be good too). Just thought that I'd add this in case anyone didn't have the coc-de-leon, like me.
