Dougsden, I’m a new guy here and my first post is thanking you for a great sbs! I will be sure to tie some of these up.
Thanks again, Mike.

Wow! You guys are awesome! It's nice to have such great support on these projects especially coming from Ray who stepped me thru the technical stuff over the phone and across our computer screens! Gee, a S by S on a S by S!
Mike, your first post on the forum! I'm glad you chose this thread to introduce yourself! I am not that good of a tier. In fact, I am the sapling in between the giant sequoia's! Welcome to the Flymph Forum! Show us some of your work! We are all wanting to know you better!
John, I have done fine copper wire wound into and around the hurls! I have trouble cutting the delicate hurls because I twist to much! When I get it right, it is an awesome thing! You have inspired me! Where's my copper?
Hank, you make me laugh! Tiny drops, not a slathering! Yea, I like gluing them together!
I can't get away this evening without recognizing the influence of our pal Bill Shuck in my tying and fishing! And, I now realize what a driving force he was with so many people on the Forum and in his personal life as well! There was hardly a person here that has not known the subtle genius of Bill! He was a friend to all and a peach of a fellow to boot! That influence is evident in the way I tie and in this pattern! What a friend! What a legacy!
Peacock hurls......these particular bronze (magenta actually with gold overtones) beauties came from a co-worker of mine who has a passion for raising peacocks! She came to work one morning with a culm of beautiful feathers each one about three feet long! I almost swallowed my coffee cup, hot coffee and all! Not all of them were good! Some of them were simply unusable! Some of the had the bronziness that you see up above! I have made a donation to this lady to keep the "Peacock Chow" in front of these birds! There were also quite a few sword feathers which I clipped, bagged, and stored for future streamer or Salmon Fly work!
The End.....I think?

Fish when you can, not when you should! Anything short of this is just a disaster.

Welcome to the forum. Doug's pattern will work in almost any water that I fish. I use it, or something similar on Freestones, tailwaters, lake and ponds.

Partsman (Mike), welcome to the FlymphForum.

Are you the same Partsman, from Michigan I encounter on TroutNut.com?

Mike,

Jason Neuswanger, you guys and the TroutNut.com website are incredibly special to me, especially for us aquatic bug nuts.

Flmyph Forum has a lot of awesome soft hackle experienced fly tiers that share their knowledge and the history of traditional spiders, wet flies, flymphs, etc.

Mike, I made you a regular member so don't be shy. We need some more Michigan soft hackle contributors. I say every year I want to visit the famous trout streams of lower Michigan.

John
