    Nice timing, was about to tie some up and was debating which pattern. I shall give yours a go.

    Thank you.

    I've added an important snippet of information to the bottom of this one.
    Thanks to AlanB for reminding me.

    Nice job, Dennis. WIll have to rattle a few up today.
    I have noticed a lot of them in the last couple of weeks over here as it has been extremely warm for the time of year. When you see them flying they look ungainly but it seems the trout don't mind as long as they fall on the water!
    I watched one fish jump about 2 feet for one at the margins last week.

    Thanks Dennis, very timely. Tied a couple up today. Interesting alternative I tried was to seal the chennile with superglue instead of flaming it.

    The Hawthornes are definitely out and about at my stillwater - very frustrating too!

    From what I can make out, it might be worthwhile to substitute peacock herl for seals fur, although I havent tried it .........they do seem to have a greenish looking head/thorax although it might affect floatability ?

    Just a thought ..........

    There's always next years hatch.
    It's not as difficult as you might think Ben. Go on give it a go, and after two or three attempts you'll be rattling them off.
