That has got something about it which i really like , dont know what it is but i like it and think it would be a good fish catcher.

Cracking idea for the wing. It’s a lovely looking fly - the blue stands out. But love the shape. Fine work GK, love it

Cheers DrP!

TBH, I was after more of a pearl effect than blue. I even put a layer of white floss underneath the tinsel ?. Still, it’ll fish.

I like using feather fibres or rabbit fur for the wings on smaller long tail patterns because I think it gives a bit more mobility - a point of detail which probably goes totally unnoticed by the fish.....

Looks magic whatever you did. I’ll have to play around with rabbit /feathers - good point about mobility on smaller flies. All the best, Patrick
