The fly I never fished before but hopefully will try this season. Its dark fly so decided to make it brighter by adding some crystal flash in v shape in place of JC which this pattern nor require. Hooks are size 14 as I like to fish small flies

It's a pattern that really does not require any flash! That I know from experience. 😉. One of the best low water patterns there is.

Lovely tying! 👍

Nice tyings. I use JAs a lot on the postie's river, or variations based on basic black + natural game cock, even small singles down to size 12. Deadly in very low water for both springers and grilse, provided you sneak up on them.
