    That one looks like another hit. ...especially during the October Caddis hatches when the trout are looking for orange.

    Gonna have to try that pearl flash over floss. That's an interesting effect.

    Do you put any varnish, head cement, etc. over the body to strengthen the flash material?

    Beat ya to it, Root. I've already tied a couple on size 12 hooks, hoping to come close to imitating a March Brown wet. Nice dressing, Patagonguy.

    A bigger hook and it looks like a dandy steelhead fly.
