    Nice as always, Scott. I've been a clacka caddis fan for several years now. They're a killer for me during the Yellow Sally hatch. But I want to try the opal, too. Dennis Potter swears by it.

    I've fished that with excellent success. I tie one on a #16 hook, with a yellow body, for the little yellow stonefly hatch. The trout seem to love it.

    If you're tying size 16's, the deer hair wing is likely too close to the tips to be very hollow. To be safe, I'd apply floatant to the wing, along with the body. Great pattern, BTW.

    Nice variation, Scott. But the original Skunk worked as either a "semi"floating, or sunk fly. Years back I caught some nice 'bows on the Yellowstone on a wet skunk. good fly, either way.

    True, oldster. Frank Johnson thought it would match the "footprint" of a mayfly better then traditional wound hackles. It does take a little practice to get it right- like Byron did.

    Years ago I was amazed to see numerous browns leaping clear out of the Wolf River (Wisconsin) for hovering damsel flies. Try to match that kind of "hatch", boys and girls!
