    This may be a bit late for most of you to fish, but it's been a very effective fly for me.

    Hi Ron,
    That is a very nice fly and well tied, the quill looks great.

    AW the Grannom is a caddis fly.

    Thanks M8s. One of the key factors for me was getting the color of the egg sac correct. After a bit of correspondence with Mike Conner, from the UK, he let me know that the key color is a dark emerald green. Once I picked a silk that went to that color when wet, it made all the difference. Funny what the fish will find as a key element in a fly.

    well Ron..in any type of 'eggs' that fish "key"on, the colour is the ticket to success or failure..
