“The Wet-Fly Corner”-Thunder

I am always searching for new wet-fly patterns. While looking through Bergman’s Trout, I came across a pattern that intrigued me from the start. When I first I saw this pattern, on plate 8 of Trout, I thought to myself, “What a wonderful pattern to bring to life in my vise, then give it a try a fishing!” When I looked at the actual pattern recipe and saw the materials listed and colors called for, though, I thought to myself, “Who in their right mind came up with this color scheme—and why?” The fly I am speaking of is called the Thunder.
