This fly was shown to me by PWTU member Paul Grathwohl. Paul has had good success using this pattern for light colored mayflies on the Lackawaxen; particularly when the Grey Fox is on the water. When tying build up the underbody with yellow then dub a thin rough overbody. This creates a translucent halo effect when the fly is wet.
