From Al:

I grew up in Michigan and have fished as long as I can remember. After graduating college, I moved to California and gravitated toward fly fishing almost exclusively. I have been tying “seriously” since 1983 and have been a tying instructor both independently and for several Colorado fly shops since 2000. In 2005 I also began guiding along Colorado’s front range. Currently I am a member of Whiting Farms Pro Staff and am employed by PEAK Fishing and I have several fly patterns commercially available. In addition to guiding, tying instruction and demos, my wife Diana and I own and operate our own company geared primarily toward flyfishing education services. More detailed information is available at www.alrittflies.com.

RECIPE:

  • Hook: Tiemco 2488
  • Thread: UTC 70 Denier
  • Tail: Byed and Barred Braided Leader Butt (Available from Hareline Dubbin’ as “Adult Damsel Body”)
  • Thorax: Super Fine Dubbing
  • Wing: Organza
  • Foam Back: Narrow strip of 2mm Closed Cell Foam, majority of length split so foam is 2 narrow legs joined at one end
