    I tied both of these flies last week for a project that EJ Malone has undertaken.

    The first fly is on a Pryce-Tannatt size 4/0 hook the second fly is on a Ron Rheinhold "Emerald Isle 4/0" hook. The next posts will be on bronzed 2/0 hooks.

    Regards Pete

    really like this pattern, a touch of the Wilkinson about it. Both look great but I prefer the proportions of first one with the slightly heavier pamering
    so much fishing, so little time
