    Nice, Hans. Do you fish that near the stream bottom?

    Kinda. I fish it on a dropper, suspended from the bend of a dry.

    Hans,

    Nice simple pattern that probably would do well when and where the green worms are suspended by filaments from trees.

    Are my eyes failing me or is your wire, for the rib, flat instead of round? Really good looking fly....

    Fly fishing and fly tying are two things that I do, and when I am doing them, they are the only 2 things I think about. They clear my mind.

    Well spotted, Warren. It is faceted wire:



    Flattened sections provide a subtle glint.
