Kethick that’s so good and so period correct. I always found those Double jungle cock wings to be a right pain in the butt.

Have you ever been to a piece of gillied fishing and tied on one of your creations? It would be worth it just to see the look on the gille's face.

I knew someone who fished classic for a year. They are still great flies.

Theyre bound to work as they did in the past,just too much time in tying them that the fear of snagging one in a tree or in the river puts me off fishing them, use the Dee and spey types tho 👍
