Tying Instructions

Instructions Maybe it's
because John Mosby (AKA: Gray Ghost) was my all time favorite Civil War hero as
a kid, or because I'm a sucker for history and tradition, but Carrie Stevens'
pattern has NEVER failed to produce a fish whenever I've used it.  It's
gotten so bad that I almost flinch when I tie it on, for fear of breaking the
streak.  I guess you could fish this fly with graphite but the magic is only
guaranteed while using an old Winston hollow built 8'6" for 7.


Orange floss.
