Notable error in "Eastern Fly Fishing" on page 40

While in the doctor's office the other day I was skimming through some of the fishing rages in the waiting room.  I'd noticed an obvious error on page 40 of the Spring Creek, PA article.

Walt's worm a favorite fly of mine and many others here in the east.  It is a very simple pattern and very effective.  It imitates a host of subsurface insects most notable crane fly larva.

"Eastern Fly Fishing"  March/April 2010

Walt's Worm on page 40.

As you can see none of the materials are correct.

So here is the proper recipe:

Walt's Worm

Hook: Mustad 9671 size 10-16
Thread: 6/0 Tan
Weight: .015 lead wire
Dubbing: Hareline Hares Ear Plus #1
