Saw this specimen last evening.
The next two images are very similar displaying the ventral view (underside).
Lastly, a little more perspective or scale.
My index finger segment is real close to 1 3/16″ (one and three sixteenths inches), from tip to fold line. The finger nail is very close to 9/16″ – about 14.5 mm. This fly was already laid out and drifting so I’m pretty sure I didn’t cause it any more damage than it had already experienced.
I’m merely reporting on one fly I managed to pick out of the water last evening. I know that I caught a few fish on the yellow spinner I’ve posted previously, but it did not work consistently all evening – just in spots. I didn’t have anything of this coloration last evening and will try to simulate it today when I tie.
