    I tye a version similiar to this fly,I call the fuzzy prince,I palmer the brown hackle over the body and counter wind gold wire over that,then change the biot wing to sulphur color love both versions keep the good tye’s comming.

    Would it be just as effective to wrap the gold wire in with the herl? Might hide the wire a bit in places, but would speed up the tying of a few dozen of those intricate little guys!
