Tying an Easy Yellow Sally

This is the first of what I hope will be quite a few video projects showing patterns that I tie.  Some are my own while most are existing patterns or my adaption of existing patterns.  For the first one I chose to demonstrate one of the easiest Yellow Sally patterns I know of.  This time of year sees the first hatches starting in the Smokies and as the summer goes on, this little insect will be important on many waters across the country.  Try it out, but even better, once you've tried it start experimenting.  There are some great variations that can be done with this simple pattern.
