I have pretty good confidence that this is a legitimate Restigouche pattern. Going back to Mary Orvis Marbury's Favorite Flies and their Histories from 1982 the Black Dose is considered a mainstay on the Restigouche. I have fished the Restigouche and it is pictured on the RRL webpage as tied by Scott Doncaster. It is also listed and pictured in Doug Underhill's Salmon Country about NB's rivers and Terry Hellekson's Fish Flies, p. 550. Notable tier Jerome Malloy, an ASFI-expo tier has this version on Pinterest.

thanks can you tell me is it moose body dyed black that makes most of these types of fly? and if so is there a source?

Found this one in the archives, a bit out of the ordinary and no match for the beautiful flies posted on this thread, but it worked. (blue soft hackle under peacock)

Hi Firefly

The attachment bug has struck. Your attachment cannot be seen. To fix the problem you need to select 'edit', attach your image again and save your changes.

It happens about 30% of the time anyone attaches an image to the forum but I don't think there is any interest in fixing the problem.

Yes, GKn, that happened to me too this morning when I was trying to post my picture. I managed to muddle through it eventually!

For my trips to Labrador I tie with dyed black moose body hair. The company that does a great job dying moose is Nature's Spirit. As I fish farther south, on the Gaspe Peninsula or on the Restigouche most of my flies have a black bear or natural skunk wing.

The Poll is up Lady and Gentlemen, there is a quick turn around this month and only 15 days for votes, so please take a look at the entries on the 1st post and get voting!

I really enjoyed going through the entries here, at each one I'd think 'we have a winner here', and then I'd move on to the next one and think 'we have a winner here':D.

Cracking entries everybody, well done!

for me it was the simplicity and the different application of a blue as a spey wing in Gwelshers fly might use that in a magenta themed fly for steelhead I also really liked zamoras fly
