    Hey, i really liked this pattern, went to the vise and tied one, i was messing with the finished product, trying to keep the flash a bit more “cone like” body… in the process, i made the fly reversed! it looked awesome still… granted i had a bit more flash added, same color and the addition of white/light blue (6904) and so then i changed the rabbit hair to ice dub chenille in a blueish with white. So basically tie the same way, make sure there is enough room for the cone head to be slidden on in the back end, which will soon be the front (oh and also i am tying on hmh tubes).
