    Here is a pattern from Scotland.

    Red thread
    gold tinsel body ribbed with gold ovel.
    Orange hackle.
    Wing is green over yellow.

    The overall appearance in the water reminds me a lot of the Green Highlander. When the sun shines on it it gets the same glow as the Willy Gunn. As with the Willy go easy on the yellow in the wing.

    The one in this picture is tied on a #6 double. The day after I tied it I tossed it into the low clear water on my home river and at the bottom of the run I nailed a nice hatchery fish.
