    That's a real beauty. I've never bothered to buy coloured tubing before just using clear silicon for the hook retainer but that really has me seeing the benefit. If my wife complains at me getting more stuff I'll blame you!

    No not this time B!

    I was going to add some to this but didn't bother in the end. Maybe I'll add some in my next attempt.

    Thanks again for the comments and feedback everyone.
    One of the best skills that an angler can ever develop is knowing the difference between passing the time and wasting it!

    A well tied version of the GBWG, I like the strong profile with the top black wing dominating the mixed colours below. I think the black wing on this pattern is supposed to shroud the under wing particularly when tied all round the tube, whereas I mainly mix them altogether and hope for the best. Will give this one a try.

    Thanks BC!

    I did read up a bit on the origin of the original WG. As far as I am aware, it was indeed tied with bunches of black over mixed yellow and orange, above and below a Waddington shank. This was soon followed by the three colours mixed around the shank. As far as I remember, one version was preferred for spring and the other for autumn but I can't remember which was which.

    I really didn't tie this trying to mimic the original. When I had the mixed wing tied on, I didn't think there was enough black in it so tried a layer of black bucktail over to see how it looked. It was a bit of an accident!

    When I tie my willie gunns on tubes and wadds I mix then tie on the yellow and orange bucktail then add the black over, I've always preferred doing it that way to mixing it all together

    I think I've only did that once before on a Waddington. Any others were tied with the three colours mixed and I never tied one I was completely happy with. I must try another again as you describe.

    Thanks sir!
