Jim,

Nice, simple pattern. Just tied one with a black wing which matches the ones I see locally. I like this kind of fly as it looks like a gosh darn real stone fly. I also can appreciate your use of the half-hitch to get the hackle barbules under control. I thought I was the only one who did that since I don't always end up at the perfect point in front of the eye.

Thanks.
