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.
