    Anyone would think that flee is sat on top of a box of air gun slugs.
    One of the best skills that an angler can ever develop is knowing the difference between passing the time and wasting it!

    I wasn't happy with the way that the blue peacock hackle was sitting. I went to the vice today to attempt something different but when I switched on the lamp at the desk, the shine of the peacock just seemed to light up and the hackle was sitting much better than when I'd tied it. It must have flattened itself out over the weekend. I added a couple of Jungle Cock eyes and varnished the head today just.

    Tying is as follows:

    Tail: Mixed yellow and orange bucktail with a couple of strands of Krystal flash
    Tag: Oval gold
    Body: Peacock herl
    Rib: Oval gold
    Wing 1: Two strands of peacock herl tied in behind the head and extending to the length of the tail for added movement
    Over wing: Peacock swords
    Hackles: Yellow hen under orange hen with peacock blue feather tied over.
    Eyes: Jungle Cock

    That would catch some serious sea trout. Lovely. Do you tie them on singles as well?

    I tend to tie my Alexandra singles in this style for sea trout. Lots of movement with this .

    Can just imagine the pulsing of that in the water.
    Like a very slim "goats toe " themed pattern . Lovely

    That is one of the most beautiful spiders Iíve ever seen. Is that just red cock hackle under the peacock?
