A little white and sunburst combo tied almost like a ghillie with bucktail tied 3/4 length on the underbody. A good pattern for spring but will surely work well in coloured water or on a bright day.... white.... ⚡ .... ? ! Didn't think this one needed J.C

That’s a real beaut and I agree about the jungle cock. It’s worth noting that the Victorians didn’t look for colour in jungle cock and prefered to use the palest or even white looking eyes.

Will have to see if I can order some online as that looks amazing.

Both cracking looking fly's Nathan and again perfectly tyed ? I wouldn't hesitate to use them at any point of the day in the autumn never mind just the end of the day ?. I've caught and seen plenty caught on white wings throughout the day

Both great, the second one is a cracker! The style of the first fly works with all the classic hair wings.

Nice tying as always(y)
