Oh my that’s really impressive. Seems logical to incorporate the name DR into one of your creationsHi All,
I'll go another mini tube, I can't see past them at the moment. No worrying about which hook is allowed single, double, treble - if it snags on a rock or gets caught in the branches of the tree Gods and survives with bent out hooks - swap the hook rather than chuck in the bin etc.
I've stayed relatively conservative as I'm confident in Cascades and need it for the fly box!! This is an orangey version.
Tube: 0.75 cm black outer, black inner
Tail: Mix bucktail - orange and yellow with smidge brushed out and mixed orange and yellow artic runner guard hairs (to half way)- 3 strands midge pearl flash
Tag: Semperfli Light gold wire 0.2 mm
Butt: Hemmy green erse (Globrite 12)
50: 50 Body: Orange holo into black floss with light gold wire
Wing: Black shadow fox (Sean Stanton)
Hackles: Longer Yellow hen under shorter orange hen
JC: Heresy I know
Cone: Metallic orange - Future Fly Hybrid
(Note: Hook isn't the one I'd use - it's just used for holding up a fly for a picture - Bendy Mouth Doubles bend at the sight of a river)
