Pretty tie. I have seen the wood duck added into the stacker with the deer hair which also makes a nice tie. I think your version gives a slightly more distinctive wing
it is hard to go wrong with peacock. nice ties
I am late to the thread but winged wets can imitate the adults both caddis and mayflies that submerge to lay eggs in addition to drowned: emergers cripples and spent adults

Been there and done that. Great insight into the minds of fisherman and their wives.
Most of the guys i got started fly fishing have been reluctant to use a second fly. If I can convince them to try they have done extremely well if i put a size 16 tungsten bead head fly on the...
Good looking boat, i hope it is just what the doctor ordered

you may find some things you forgot you had!
Thanks for the replies
I use super glue on barbell eyes for bass & salt water size flies , and on the bare hook shank before starting the thread on small marabou jigs which take a beating from scores of trout. All the...
I have tried white fingernail polish on the hook for for cream zebra midge pupa s with thread and fine wire rib over the polish. it helped get closer to the right color when wet.

I guess it would sit differently on the water? Maybe float better? or is it just cool?
They do have stout little thoraxes
Fly rods are personal choices. Cost always enters in at some point nobody wants to pay for a ferrari and get a pinto. Even big name rod companies make a few less than stellar rods. the Winston BIII ...
Here is some thing to think about. I took the rod evaluations from the Yellowstone 2013 5wt shootout, and calculated rods cost per performance point using each rods cost and dividing by the total...
