    White-bling!

    This is my favourite pattern from here on in. It's basically a whitewing with a silver body and lots of bling, both pearl and silver krystal flash (hence why I call it a whitebling). A great fly especially when the water's running clear. Tied on waddingtons and a couple of Bill Coe longshank...
