That is a great looking fly David! No need to save it for sulphurs. Looks like it would probably mimick a lot of mayfly nymphs.

I think you did an excellent job with the tie. If I would be critical about anything, it would be the color. Sulfur nymphs are the master of camoflouge, mottled light and dark. I do realize the color varys with the river basin and region, and maybe your color does represent the streams you fish. I blend dubbing that is difficult to define because it varies as I wrap the fly. Just a thought.

Thanks for the input guys. It's funny how every year I tie a few hundred flies of different patterns for this trip, and basically use a sulphur nymph, sulphur wet, and maybe a bugger or two. It's fun to experiment and tweak the different patterns , hopefully improving each season. Thanks again.
