Ecuador Fly - 7/0

I must be honest...I am not a fan of "pancake heads"...but that is a matter of personal taste. Now I know there are others who always finish their flies that way and that's fine. I'm trying not to be judgmental, but to my eye they take something away from the flow of the fly.

The way I avoid crowding the eye of the hook is is the use of a ruler and fine tip Sharpie pen. I mark and allow for the head and throat FIRST, then if the fly has multiple segments I mark the underbody accordingly...AFTER the back end of the fly up to the butt is complete. That's it....

I really like the wing shape here. Man, this one is special!
