    This is the most popular color of mayfly spinner overall. It seems that many different mayflies turn this color in the spinner stage. Although most mayfly spinners are fished on the surface, they can even be more productive fished as wet flies. After mayflies mate and reproduce, both sexes quickly die. These dead spinners only float for a short period of time and then they become waterlogged and sink, where they are consumed by trout.

    Organza is a thin, sheer fabric traditionally made from silk. Many modern organzas are woven with synthetic filament fibers such as polyester or nylon. Traditionally a fabric used to make brides and harem women more attractive, Organza has found favor with fly tiers for several applications, such as the clear spent wings of mayfly spinners; the fabric is cut in narrow strips with the fibers running parallel. Then the strip is tied cross-wise of the hook. After the rest of the fly is tied, the cross fibers are easily picked out to leave only the fibers that were tied perpendicular to the hook. These clear crinkled fibers are lightweight and when treated with floatant will support the fly on the surface of calm water. The crinkles in the fibers give a sparkley effect just like real clear mayfly spinner wings. Organza fibers have become the most popular material for this application.

    Excellent craftsmanship

    I purchase dry flies to learn how to duplicate them. This is an excellent pattern for that purpose. It setsca high standard. I fish with my oen flies and occasionally give them away at Project Healing Waters or to friends I meet streamside.


    Excellent Workmanship

    I buy fly to duplicate them myself. This is an excellent fly for that purpose. I fish with the flies I tie or give them away.
