This pattern was posted on another forum tied by a MV guide that lost his life several years back. It drew rave reviews form people who have used it so I decided to tie one up. I had never spun deer hair before this fly so I am pretty happy with the results. There's a few voids in my packing, but overall I think it came out well. I really enjoyed sculpting the head once I got the hang of the hair and its "grain". I look forward to fishing this.
