    I have seen that style before. I think it's a Wally Wing, but I think Wonder wings are very similar and much easier to tie. Look in the Fly Tier Beachside Reference if your have access to one.

    Good looking fly. I have caught Trout and Bass on them. I agree with Scott, try some Sculpin pattern. They are real fish catchers.

    Nice looking flies. The drop shot setup works great. The GRHE with the herl wing case video changed the way I tie this nymph. His Improved Baetis has proven to be a nice addition to the box.

    Re: Recipe for Sulfer Comparadun?

    Sorry for the delay. You will see at least 2 distinct species of sulphurs. Even though the overall color will be a pale yellow, they will also have varying amounts of orange in the thorax area.
