mayfly with simple extended body
size 14 hook, blue dun hackle, extended body, gold wood duck wing, tan dubbing
here is a link on how to create the extended body:
tie in extended body, trim excess on angle.
place duck feather on top of hook, make 3 loose wraps
pull feather back for desired wing length, split tips for wings, x and figure 8 wrap, clip excess on angle.
apply dubbing, tie in hackle feather, wrap forward, create small head.
apply head cement, and finished.
fly works for me on the pond, haven't had the chance to get it on a stream yet..

if every cast caught a fish, it would be called "catching" not "fishing"
