    I am interested in a variation of the pattern noted above. This is a fly I used at LilaA. The fly has much more yellow and has variegated tail (yellow and black) plus a variegated collar.

    Your thoughts,

      I would totally agree with variations in colors in the pattern based on the waters fished and what the fish prey upon. I’m thinking right now of a lake I am soon headed to with small baitfish that do have a yellow/light olive cast with vertical black markings (baby bass I believe). Color, location and presentation.
