    Body - black holo
    Rib - small silver oval (veniards #14)
    Hackles - black cock
    Wing - jc

    Think that makes a total of 4 materials not including the things excluded so should meet the criteria
    This fly looks fantastic i will have to get someone to tie me up a few.

    Default Thunder and Lightning Hitch

    My entry this month is a Thunder and Lightning Hitch - I hear great things about the Hitch on the Dee and elsewhere so determined to give it a go. Haven't a clue whether I've got the proportions right. Hopefully if the thread and Rib aren't included then these are my 4 materials:

    1) Wing - Dyed yellow grey squirrel
    2) Orange midge flash - couple of strands
    3) Orange throat with 4) blue guinea fowl over

    (Black thread and a small gold rib; tube 1cm of 3mm outer tube burred and then flattened to form head and pierced with hot needle to form hitch point)

    Tight lines, Patrick
