A Request....The McGee Lime Kebari

McGee Lime Kebari
Recently, I received a request (via Chris Stewart) for one of my flies to be tied a little differently.  The Royal Sakasa Kebari is my all time favorite sakasa kebari experiment. I have tied more of these than any other fly and my fly box is never without a 1/2 dozen of them.  But one of Chris's customers asked if I could tie a dozen in the image of a Tennessee Wulff.  For those who may not be familiar with this version of a Wulff it is virtually the same as a Royal Wulff except that the red silk band is replaced with a band of lime or chartreuse thread. I'm very happy with the look of the fly and can't wait to try out the few extra that I tied for my self.  For those interested I'm posting the recipe below.
