    Just buy plain brass, unplated beads. They still sell them. If they haven't tarnished enough by the time you wish to use them, you can choose from a number of methods for advance aging brass.

    Thanks for the replies Bob and Allan. I've never fished a traditional, full-collared dry with a single wing. I imagine it being more prone to leaning over.

    Byron,
    The "E/C Caddis" isn't an elk hair caddis. E/C = emergent/cripple, and the two tone body of the E/C is for the same reason you described on your PMD above.

    Interesting fly. Did you have a natural in mind when you tied this?

    I don't think I could get such a defined stripe on dubbing. I'm guessing you have a thorax of ice dub or similar dubbing?
