Korn's La-A Mayfly

Korn's La-A Mayfly is a thorax dun with the wings of an Angel --- This fly is dedicated to a special Angel of mine.  It was specifically designed for the Spring Creeks of the East but will surely work wherever there are Mayflies to be found.  Change the color to tie variations such as; Hendrickson's, Sulphers, PMD's, BWO's or even an Adams....
