Hi Hans,

Yes, I know that you've tied the way I mentioned above. Very nice use of mallard for the body of the Urk Naylor. I'm not a fan of counter-ribbing and don't care for the look. Also, if the tier isn't careful, the counter-rib can easily loosen at the tie down point and slide all over the body. JMHO and the trout probably don't care. The reason I asked you to tie it was because you could do it with the exact same hook and materials and then photo them side by side for comparison.
