Superb as always. Love the one top right on the gold hook.
Back in those days unlike now a grade A jungle cape would of been something very pale and they would choose the white JC eyes not catch our eyes but the fish. Same goes for Golden Pheasant where I’m not even sure if any pure ones exist anymore? But the crest were so much paler, stronger but had very colourful tips, sometimes red.

That frame of Tay flies is so good.
