    Lucian, How do you tie the wing? Is it just fibers cut from the stem, or is the stem tied in, too? If stem is tied in, do you use 2 feathers and split them into separate wings? I tried tying this with stem in, but got a very flat, odd-shaped wing. Maybe I didn’t use enough feathers. I wish you would post a video of the tying of this fly.

      Hi David,
      Sorry for my late reply. It is tied using paraloop technique. I will make a video because is difficult to explain in words .
