    Ralph,

    Nice. Curious as to why you used a nymph hook this fly? Seems like a bit of iron to keep on top with CDC and moose body hair.

    Ralph,

    Nice fly, nice video. Did you get a new camera? (out on the road for 4 weeks with little wi-fi service at the campgrounds and may have missed that).

    Agree with Walter and John. If you do the Barns Hole thing (I'm not much of a nymph fisherman, but it is cool), you'll want something heavier. We fished stonefly nymphs, big hare's ears, spaghetti...

    Bruce,

    You open a whole box of Pandoras with a lead-in like that. If it were me and I were tying generic nymphs, I'd make them Hare's Ears (variation) with Indian hen for the tail & legs.

    Very nice fly. Would a dearth of your strain of grayling be a HypoThalamus, and an excess a HyperThalamus?
