Very nice Neil, a great fly adapted for Salmo. The Cashmere works well here supported by the fox wings and palmered hackle. :)

This is the standard to aim for guys, another 9 days or so till entries close (14th April), so keep them coming :).

Four days to go till new entries close this month, and with the good yet limited number of entries so far, this could be the month to scoop a Foxy goodie bag.

Get tying folks, looking to see some more Cashmere creations :).

Not many entries but all killer flies for sure! Hopefully we'll see some more nice last minute entries :)

Altmor, I must admit I kind of forgot about this but am charging my camera battery as we speak, on my way to a meeting but will take some pictures after lunch, hopefully in time before the cut off ;)

The Pink Marquis

Here we go.
I had planned on tying something else but just didn't find the time. I received a batch of Cashmere goat along with a few other goodies a while ago from Sue and this is one of the flies where I used the goat in the wing mixed in with the fox. The fly has two small strips of silver flash in the wing, the rest you see in the picture is sunlight reflecting in the goat hairs. I tied a few tubes using nothing but flash and several thin layers of the goat hair, looks brilliant in the water.

Anyway, here's my entry. Not sure if it even deserves a name but for the sake of the contest I'm calling the picture 'The Pink Marquis' :rolleyes:

hook: Partridge bartleet double CS10/4 size 6
but: medium gold tinsel
body: silver tinsel
rib: medium gold tinsel
wing: pink marble fox (from Sue) underwing with two layers of black silver fox (from Sue) with black cashmere goat (again from Sue) and two thin strands of silver flash mixed in between, reaching a bit longer then the fox hairs.
hackle: natural guinea foul
eyes: jungle cock
head: black thread

Hope some of you like it, looking forward to see the last minute entries tonight :)

Rib-eye and Fleurie again ??

:D:D ... Sorry Ade Barra was right on this occasion - sausage rolls and beans with a topping of last night's macaroni and cheese by the side :D.

I've too much to do tonight to get jiggy in the kitchen - pair of waders needs a patching and this comp needs a polling - then I've got that bottle of Fleurie to work on :D.

Won't be long guys, if there's any stragglers to come in the next half hour ?
