Classic pattern

This is a Lew Oatman pattern, the Cutlips Minnow. I always liked the look of the dun hackles flanking the olive. The lavender body really sets the wing off. I'll try it this spring.

“Once there were brook trout in the streams in the mountains. They smelled of moss in your hand. On their backs were vermiculate patterns that were maps of the world in its becoming. Maps and mazes. Of a thing which could not be put back. Not be made right again. In the deep glens where they lived all things were older than man and they hummed of mystery.”
