Thats a great looking crane fly. Would you mind sharing the receipe?
Looks like ginger hackle with dubbing, but what is the leg material?

Thanks

olesmoke-

Thanks for the recipe, I'll definitely give it a try. I like crane flies, and apparently so do the trout! :biggrin:
Good idea to use the foam to keep the fly on top of the water.
