Can someone post a pic of this fly? I've read the description, but I would help to have a look at it.
Thanks, Pete

That's one of Ron's secret flies. Their may be a surcharge associated with viewing such a photo.

I don't think I have a good photo, but here is a photo: (this is a not particularly good fly that has been fished and came off a sheep patch)

nothing secret about it, I learned the fly from Walter Zoch and Alan Bray.

should be a size 14 or 16. The bead is optional.
Tail - pheasant fibers
body - peacock herl
rib - pic your fav - I like midge lace
hackle collar
wing - antron yarn finally clipped to make a fuzz ball.

don't ask me why this fly with its tail makes such a great swimming caddis, but it works. My biggest trout ever on the Guad, 26", was caught on a Guad Prince.
