    Default Jockie

    When I saw this in Chris Mann's book I had to tie it for our own Jockiescott. A long time since I tied a Bronze Mallard wing and my feathers are not good so pardon the rubbish wing

    Lovely tying as always Gary!

    I did see that one in Mann's book but, again, never got round to tying as I knew the mallard would end up in bits on the floor in a fit of rage!!! I really do waste a lot of Mallard.

    A real beauty Gary!
    One of the best skills that an angler can ever develop is knowing the difference between passing the time and wasting it!

    Thanks lads
    I will have to get some good Mallard ordered. I have always thought that it is a beautiful colour.

    Lovely Gary! I donít mind a slightly straggly mallard wing as I think you get a bit more movement from it.

    PS id like to see a silver rear body on one for the sea trout!

    As Falkus said after the first cast the wing ends up a bunch of fibres so why not tie them in that way in the first place

    How about this one Simon
