Doug -

That is a very creative approach with the single feather for the hackle, legs, and wing. Nicely done.

I am curious about tying the wire down along the top of the hook shank to the bend. Is the intent to simply add weight, or make the fly ride "hook up", or both ??


P.S. I did finally have a reason to tie some flies using your WH approach - it worked out quite well.
