    Default Blackers` Silver Grey Fly

    One of the illustrated patterns from Blackers` book in the style DC mentioned. I don`t see why this style shouldn`t fish well these days This is dressed on a 2/0 which is lot bigger than the recommended which should be a #1. the 2/0 really stretches the materials , hence the wing is a tad short


    This was one of his general patterns . Munro, he does list 5 patterns for the Tay. Be interesting to see what you come up with to compare
