Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was
cut by the world's great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time.
On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words,
and some of the words are theirs.

Very interesting, I have never seen anyone tie in the hackle like that or use wire as an underbody.

I have all the requried material on-hand I may have to try this one tonight.

I just tied up few of these using the technique on the video.  Went together slick as s**t, I manged to tie 6 in just under half an hour.  Once I got down to an 18 or 20 it took considerably more time and concentration, but a 14 or 16 is pretty easy.

 

Thanks for posting Dave, I need to come up with a few more mid-depth flies and this one looks like it will be very productive.

 Tied a few #16 last night.  They didn't go together as fast for me.  Had trouble finding something in the box to substitute for the Hungarian partridge.  All my grouse, duck, etc were too long so I ended up using some old hackle instead.

Pheasant body feathers can make a good substitution for grouse, sometimes they are a bit too stiff however.  I now keep a bag or two of grouse feathers on hand, they have really nice action and work very well in most wet and nymph patterns.
