That is one of my all time ultimate go to streamers. It would be the first or second thing I would put in my box:


Do you mind if I borrow your picture to replace the crappy one I have on that fly recipe? It was one of the first I took with my digital camera. I'll just note that the light variant is shown in the picture.

May classic patterns that produce will never fade from our pattern books.

So can I borrow your picture to upgrade the one that I have now?
I always liked that fly, and so have the brook trout I've caght on it. Beautifull tye OSD. I got one just like that from TODDSON in one of the swaps last summer. :)

Thanks for the shout out SALMONATOR. I like the fly myself. I do think that OSD's is nicer. I like the larger saddle hackle wings. Being new I am constantly trying not to put too much material on the hook. I forget that with alot of streamers this is the way they should be.

Beautiful Fly OSD.
Thanks Toddson
I remembered yours from the swap and had been thing of tying some when I found some spruce hackle.
well I finally found the hackle after digging through enough boxes.
I still haven't found the dark spruce hackle.
