    We are a long way from both of those. Even if they do occur here, I pretty much have not seen the trout slap each other over the head to feed on them.

    The colour is applicable to our streams on those two - lovely flies btw.

    I prefer tying a single-wing version similar to the Bent-Spent spinner.

    Awesome Tie! Would love to see a SBS - Dig the green egg case. Been experimenting with these myself.
