Actually Zamboner that is a Carter's bug. Tied green with a red centre of deer hair clipped. This is one of Bryant's farvorites. It is indeed a green Carter's bug.

Thanks for the compliments - lots of years of practice and Bryant's how to's.

GM what do you call your yellow bugs? or is that a dumb question and they are just "yellow bugs"
I had great luck with a similar fly I tied for a trip to the Kedgwick, although mine look sick compared to yours.

Here's the link to Bryant's method of tying the Carter's but. Just use green deer hair and a red joint (mid section) of deer hair for the ones in the photo. Tied the same way.

I was at Bryant's today around 11:00 am and there was a guy there waiting for Bryant to finish up an identical fly. Funny how the word gets out eh??


Good to hear you are having some luck.
