    Let the fish be the judge, thats what a guide told me once. Looks good other than it looks like it should have been tied a little more forward. Let us know if it works.

    Hi The Reason It Is Tied The Way it ... Is Because it is a Catskill Type Fly...That is why the Bare place is left in the shank....This allows for a special type of knot to be placed there...

    Very nice. Those examples certainly have the classic look of Cross's dry flies, with bare shank behind the eye of the hook to receive a Turle knot

    It's a nice little Fly which will catch Fish one I will also try when I dye some Duck Feathers,It will come in handy on a Mayfly Hatch on a # 12 Hook.
