Backtrax not trying to steal your thunder. Your fly design is yours, and I think you made a good choice using moose fibers for the tail, very durable. The biot you used can be tied using the other side to look more like this fly, but i like the way you tied the biot better. I think it looks more gill like. Most nymphs have gills along their sides. As far as the hot spot goes my initial impression is that it may help. Orange is one of the colors that remain the same deep into the water column. I think the big advantage is a small fly with a narrow profile that sinks quick. I think the Copper John is a good example.
