Looks like the rare bloke buzzing round the creeks of High Country County...does she work? If so, I will enclose a bill with a pic of Grant in exchange for a decent 6 pack of beer from your parts and a dozen of these... 0--0

I have no idea if this fly will work or not, in fact if it wasn't for croaker, I would have not known it was called a "white miller".

But that image still haunts me, the brown jumping clear of the water and snatching one in mid air......

I'm going to try this fly tomorrow night, I have three different styles tied up, and I will try all three if I see the hatch again. They usually come out right at dusk the "magic hour"

There's a white fly on the Au Sable in Michigan that your outstanding fly would match.  When they're on - there's a zillion of them.  Most of them I saw were below Mio, but I found them one nite on the Holy Water.  Many, many wild Browns gobbled them up.  It was wonderful.

Thanks for bringing back the memory
Stalk softly and carry a green stick.

Nice tie as usual.
The only problem is that here in American the white miller is a moth.
Your fly looks more like an ephoron, the fly jwgnc is talking about...



Just me being a dick.  >:D
Real nice tie though... REAL nice!
