Perfect Candidate for a Woven Fly

But which weave?
Both the "Crisscross" and the "Mossback" (according to pics in Leeson & Schollmeyer) look to me anyway as being good candidates, but before I climb that mountain, was wondering if anyone here has a strong recommendation.

This reminds me of the time I met this guy who was good at weaving flies, so I tried to butter him up to give me a few. I did that by bringing him to a private spot where I had access. I put him on fish. He caught fish. He never said thanks, and I never got a fly. Oh well, hope springs eternal.

From the anal gills and the markings, this appears to be Agnetina--probably capitata.
