    Hey Gary,

    I'd take that last spot if still available. Just brushed the dust of my tying gear last month after many years away. A bit rusty, but wouldn't mind giving it a shot. Maybe that Snot Dart I saw on the forum a bit ago.

    what did you use for the tail/hackle? I can't tell from the picture, but I like it.

    Thanks! i like the pattern a lot. I've never tied with Lady Amherst tippets before, but that isn't surprising as there are many many materials that I've yet to play with.

    In the fall these also work in the rivers as October Caddis

    They tend to fish just sub-suface

    Chris~
    Can you share some tying instructions for that one? Looks like a interesting one to tie...
    Thanks!
