green drake fly - tied by Barry ord clarke

Green drake fly

Another technique for a spent mayfly. Spent mayflies have their wings slightly raised in a more up right position to 45° as with this pattern, if you would like it to represent a spent spinner, just push the wings down, so they lie flat on the water as with the tail.
