Excellent Richard! I was getting some great dry fly action before the high-water period started. I like the spinner pattern with poly wings to imitate just about any dry fly. After it is tied; I flick a permanent marker (brown) through the poly to give it a variegated effect.

I like this style of dry because it helps the fly sit correctly in the water most of the time. Also; it is robust to dynamic fishing tactics.

They float great and it is amazing how quick a fish will hit when the fly lands.
