I second Fishingal's wooly worm suggestion. It involves several fundamental tieing skills in an unforgiving way. I've fished them dry and wet in all kinds of variations. Anymore for me, simplifying is good!

If you have done a lot of buggers, you have all the skills needed to proceed to the RS2. Start at 18 or 20 and work your way down to #30 . BTW, I think the fly tying forum "decided" a while back that it doesn't matter if there are 2 split tails, or 10 in a bunch. fish can't count. Don't tell that to Mr Chung though

I think that's where I went wrong with my first attempt at tying flies several years ago. Those little bastages are tough!
