Hi,

 

This is one from me now to come out of the shade... hehe.

Irish pattern from Malone's book, which is described also by FF for the River Bush. Was screwing my head to find "dirty-medium-brick-red" hackle and finally have grabbed one from the skin I have, which is of reddish-orange-brownish shade. Unfortunately, the real color of the hackle and light orange floss was not captured correctly by my camera. Probably I will re-do the photo one more time in natural light.

Was a bit struggling with peacock herl head this time and it turned out a bit messy.

Nope Bogdan, don't see what your talking about...just love that fly!! I am still working out the whole herl head thing, the wing I'd nicely done, showy but subtle. If that makes any sense? Glenn
ASFI show, great people, beautiful flies and new friends!

Great looking fly.  I would not change a thing (although you are right, if there is orange floss in there it all seems yellow... also what is yellow somehow seems  unnaturally bright)...

 

I really like that head, suggest that you don't mess with it, it is fine.

 

Love the jay throat - A+

Thanks all for kind words! I will continue.

 

Dear Geert, it seems to me I'm the only one from St.Petersburg showing my flies here on this forum. Other Russian colleagues are living in other areas.
