I am almost done with the neighbor's fly box for his 40th birthday. In an effort to make a well balanced fly box, I made some streamers and was going to make some Skip's dad for the box. However, Skip's dad did not turn out like I wanted to, so I went looking for another pattern. I came across Murray's Road Kill Nymph. Looking at the fly box, I noticed a large number of flies were in darker colors so I decided to lighten the pattern up a bit. This is what I came up with. Let me know what you all think. The neighbor said he wanted flies that (a) catch smallies and (b) are poppers. He loves to fish on the surface. I have been working with him though and I am trying to get him to branch out thus some streamers in the box. BTW this is a size 10.
