Having felt just a pang of guilt about yesterday's feeble entry (the San Juan Worm), I decided to tackle the RS2 for today's 27 in 27 installment. It's actually not a terribly complex fly, except for the fact that I have trouble with the fluorofiber split tail.
I'll take the result. I think I got it looking OK. The tutorial from the Hopper Juan helped a great deal. Whether or not I can pull it off consistently remains to be seen, but my target for the night is five to help fill a holiday gift box I've been working on.
Hook: Size 18
Collar/abdomen: Charcoal thread covered with dark hare's ear dubbing
Wing: White antron
Tail: White sparkle fluorofiber
