Black Drake Gray Drake Siphlonurus Mayfly

I notice a great many of you are consistently researching the Siphlonurus mayfly. Take a look at the attached link re Polly Rosborough, the late and great, from South Central Oregon. HIs ‘fuzzy nymphs’ were simple, impressionistic patterns. Amongst the patterns are simple black/gray drake patterns for those slow stretches of rivers, streams and sometimes lakes. A swimmer nymph that usually emerges via swimming and then attaching to weeds and reeds much like damsels..the link is worth a look at. Many current, notable tyers in the NW have always paid homage to Rosborough, so he must have known something. My favorite of his patterns was the Casual Dress.
