dryfly,

It's not a question, rather a confirmation. When you are tying the dun pattern think wing, and when tying spinners think body..(greendrake)


Allright - gotcha now.
Actually though, I have seen fish get very selective on spinner patterns - especially on the Delaware river. Those fish frustrated me for years up there - they just refused to hit traditional spinner patterns tied with wings of poly or antron.
Then I started to use spinners with wings cut out from micro-web materiel. And it made all the difference in the world. Those fish suddenly weren't very tough at all any more

afish........really cool article and pictures of Elsie Darbee , i can do a descent job of getting her look but i can't sit there for eight hours doin it , maybe four , JayL if you would even use the word "close" i'd consider it an extreme honor. George Harvey was also an advocate of dries tied in this style , he is where i learned the technique of using two or even three hackles to get that "Buzz" Fishi , you are the first one on here i remember ever using the word "art" to describe fly tying. For me that's what it is.

The WBD will put any good fly pattern to the test. One hears a lot about the Hendicksons but not much on WBD drakes..Does the WBD get a robust green drake hatch?

I've fished green drakes on the west branch and main stem. However, I remember them for the most part hatching at dusk/ dark. Never saw many during the daytime there.
But I've been told that they will come off during the daytime on rainy days
