I’ve tied a variant of this fly for at least 30 years. It’s been super productive over that time span. I like the 1760 hook for this pattern rather than the 200R. I fish the South Park lakes quite a bit. The 2x long 2x heavy hook holds up better to 3x tippet. The final result looks just as good.

Thank you for this post and video. I’ve been looking for the brown medallion sheeting for some time. I certainly hope you have some restock.
