    He was very active all over while he was working on his book. My guess is he's taking a breather and he'll be back.

    No....more on the lines of a Borger Hares Ear. Or a larger version of my C2C nymph. Great for steelhead too.

    A variation of the traditional Skunk wet pattern. Very effective in the Northeast for trout and panfish.

    When tying divided hair wings on Wulff and Humpy style patterns, I find head cement to be a very useful tool for locking them in place. Can't see a negative there.

    Scott,

    I leave the hackle but do often 'V-notch" the bottom while on the stream. I tend to fish this pattern as an adult, and will go to the LTD version for flat water.
