I need to appologize to Richard for this photo. This just happened to be the one that he labeled for me to send back to him, but I didn't see it until I had already send out the flies. The wings on the rest were much better.
I'm sorry Ned, but i'm going to have to report this photo to the admin. for being such a "poorly tied" fly.
All joking aside, it was one of the flies I tied in haste, which was the reason I wrote on the tag to send it back.
It's all yours now Ned!! LOL
It's actually an easy fly to tie.
Here are the ingredients:
Hook: 2-3XL wet fly, sz 10-6
Thread: Black or brown 6/0
Tail: Brown mottled turkey section
Body: Flat gold tinsel (didn't have gold so I used copper which I think looks better)
Rib: Gold wire, wrapped opposite direction of tinsel (optional) (again I used copper wire instead)
Hackle: Brown, tied wet style
Wing: Brown mottled turkey tail sections, on edge over body
