The Dark Star dun
In high glare situations this fly shines as the black wings are easy to see in this situation. I will confess that there are some times when the black wings are next to impossible to see, but the lighter colored hackle(sandy dun) makes the fly visible at those times.
The video is currently uploading and will be on youtube late tonight. I will have it on here in the morning.
