    PT version

    Aint tied this one in about a year and half, when i'd just about started with classics, and the last version was woeful.

    Wing a bit short, no herl for the head. Messed around with 5 herls before i got frustrated and just varnished it.
    Also didnt have Jay long enough for the throat so i gave it the blue gallina treatment, which could also be a bit longer.
    body hackle could also be a fraction shorter too..
    Bump on the tag.


    Hook is a vintage 1/0.

    Hey Eric, I'll jump in for Eunan, it's short for Pryce-Tannatt....All the old masters had there own
    variations for the same patterns, so we say who's recipe we followed....
