Bob Reece’s hacklestacker attractor; appears to share genetic code on the front end with the Morrish May Day. Made a few minor changes to the original, mostly due to availability of materials; doubtful that the fish will care. Here’s the SBS if you’re interested.

Another easy-to-tie floater from the folks at Flyfishfood; hopper/stonefly/general attractor. Just a couple minor changes, due to availability of materials, but the results are similar (and yes, I forgot to pinch the barb). Here’s the video if you’re interested.
