Lady Caroline - slightly 'agricultural' compared to some of the other flies on show - a fishing fly!

I think it looks the business. Your body And ribbing give it a great authentic ‘old look’. When that’s in the water it’ll look great.
Thank you. Hopefully I will do the business on the Spey next week - I don't suppose the fish see many of these nowadays. I wonder how many people give them a try.

Very nice fly, well tied! I like the green crystal flash head, I think a blue one would look the business of a Goats Toe also.

First fly I've tied for lots of months.

It's beautifully tied GW, super tight, even rib - lovely proportions - and that Peacock neck looks amazing.

Tied up a Brora , read somewhere its a Megan Boyd flee, hope this counts ?View attachment 49326

wow - that’s stunning Keithick. Love the body and wing is beautiful. If that doesn’t count then scrap this comp - as Megan Boyd was definitely ‘behind’ hundreds of mostly male fishers who would send letters from far and wide to get her Atlantic Salmon patterns. It’s a cracker! Cheers, Patrick

? That’s pretty much taken the words out of my mouth and something I should have specifically included! Great fly from a dedicated woman.
