It must have been a great GP skin as the feathers have a depth of colour and a distinct shine to them.Thanks Ypres!

No, this is not a blog on whether you prefer spicy Indian or Chinese food, although a nice Chinese chicken curry with fried rice would be ...flyclay.blogspot.com
The tails on those aren’t dyed at all and are all natural. They were off the best GP skin I ever used. I got it from Cookshill. Unfortunately, it’s all picked out now and I haven’t been able to get a GP skin since of that quality.
Hope you enjoy the blog post!
Brilliant blog. The veilings add considerably to the fly. For what it is worth I think the swan looks a bit ‘boxy’ and the wee feathers get lost in the dressing so I would use glo brite. Having said that I am having enough trouble getting all the other material on Irish shrimp flies without complicating matters with veilings so will leave Curry’s famous fly for a while yet. Currently working on a Foxford Shrimp.
Thanks for your input.
