    Traditional halfback

    Poor quality materials and tools are destined to discourage beginner tiers and cause greater expense when the time comes to replace them.

    Yep, that's the one.

    I think I tied and used some of the Halfbacks many years (20?) ago. I belive there was also a Fullback which was similar but with the shellback over the whole body. It's not a pattern that has stuck in my fly box and I can't say that I remember much about it except the catchy name.

    No offense intended. Naming flies is becoming a quagmire as almost everything has been tied before and almost every name has been used before. Anyway, like I said, I like yours better.

    John, no offense to be taken. I called it that because that's what it was called when I found it. It did lead me to seeing another pattern I've never seen, which was cool.
