    Default First tie of the new decade

    I hadnít tied for a while and this turned out to be the first fly I tied this year.

    Itís a variant of a fly I tied for a fly swap a few years ago that Iíd tied on a tube.

    I couldnít find anything black that I liked to make a tail so I used some guinea fowl.

    This should make a nice silhouette when fished near the surface when the river is starting to rise and colour.

    Love the fly by the way.
    It's all very well using WW2 analogies when referring to Brexit - 'spirit of the blitz' and all that. Imagine the curious atmosphere though if you were sitting in your air raid shelter looking around and realising that half of the people around you had voted to get bombed
