I never thought of pulling a bit of foam over the top. I like that. Image

Both are nice flys. But the 1st one will out catch the # 2 in most areas because most spent wing bugs have lighter wings.

try this --- use some green crystal Flash to tie bug number # 1.--- 2 x long number 10 or 8 hooks. Makes a dandy coffin fly that reflects down into the water. Tie it exactly the same,just change the wing color
I have had some large trout get stupid on that fly during May and early June on the Beaver Dam

Nice flys,my friend

They look good to me, and the life jacket will make them hang in the film, and make them easier to see. I like yarn or hair for spinner wings better than hackle. I like a product like Para Post or Hi Vis for the wings, they are treated and won't absorb as much water as something like antron. You can add just a couple strands of KF in with the yarn or hair if you want to.

I know these are just another decoy to distract us from the flies you are really fishing, nice try though ;) :D They'll look pretty in that box full of flies that you carry around to show everyone what you been catching them on :twisted: :D
