Had a bit of time over the holidays to do a bit of tying and this was one of the patterns I did. Its perhaps not as well known as the similar Bann Special but can do very well on its day, particularly later in the season. Its a pattern from the Faughan River and created by the late Lawrence Cunningham. Hope you enjoy and find it useful.

thanks guys and yes Hemmy... still works or it did in 2015 anyway :D.

I actually gave that particular fly to one of the guys who helped me with the filming.. and he was using it when his friend asked to try/cast his rod.. and you guessed it.. didn't the friend go and hook and land a fish using it.. much 'banter' ensued :D

Great video and tying instructions. Have tied up a couple myself and will look out Easky's other videos on You Tube.
