Due to the unavailable materials for tying a "Sportsman Say" (develeped by Gene Letourneau), I tied this with lemon teal flank wings as cheeks, and replaced the jungle cock feather with a guinea hen eye.

I can confirm that this fly is a killa! I had the same fly tied on and didn't catch anything on this particular day but the old men fishing the very same pattern all around me did very well.

Lead On Nancy.
