Playing about with green bits. Waiting on a new JC cape , stuck on a couple of splits to get an idea. Pheasant hackle wound through for a bit more movement under the fly. Has potential.... It's really hard to get a good picture of the sheep and marabou, never sits right for the camera.
Can someone tell me what the dressing is for the Dee sheep, for a 7.5cm fly on a tube, I've seen pictures of the fly on google but just can't find the recipe for love nor money! I could potentially tie a imatation from a picture, but having the recipe would be a lot more advantageous!
Not the best pics - but here's a go at alternative monkey style patterns - Dee Sheep (after looking at Rotenone's version - but on a bottle tube) and an orangey monkey.
Free swing hook optional..will give it a go...maybe
I love this pattern, particularly in clear water, but have always been unsure if it was originally tied with JC or without?!
I like the look of the fly with, and without but am curious to know how the original was tied?
