Nice tie dalerio. It's a good one for sure If you ever get a chance to watch Hugh tie some up it can be informative. I think he still comes over to tie a LRO a couple times a year. He does a couple small things that change the way the fly looks and fishes. The way he weights the fly, and the way he wraps the hackle are a little different than a standard wet fly pattern. Adding some ribbing to your fly would make it a little more durable, but it looks fine like it is. Wet flies and how to fish them are becoming a lost art.
