    I'll be copying this but doubt I can make it look so good. Would you say it has a bit of a Willie Gunn buzz about it?

    Thanks Ard,it has three primary colours similar to the Willie Gunn, only this one is orange, black and white,it's a fly I haven't fished before but I've heard it does work.

    I'd happily give that a swim, white is such an underused colour in my opinion.

    The original Oystercatcher has almost no resemblance to a WG. It is, like the bird from which it takes its name, primarily black and white, with a couple of flashes of orange, and also has a completely different profile. And the colours in the Oystercatcher are much more in blocks, I think with the deliberate intention of creating contrast (it was designed for use mainly in coloured water), whereas one of the essences of a WG is that the black, orange and yellow are blended together in a more impressionistic way.

    To be honest, this version is so far from the original Oystercatcher that I would question whether it's even useful to use the same name (not to say it won't catch fish though).
