Been having this male Banksii feather pair on my list of materials to try and use... The cool part of the female feathers is a huge disappointment in the river. No sunlight reflection, just a dull piece of crap. These male barbs are a lot thicker, and it makes the red more vibrant. I'm looking forward to try it this summer.

 

I tied the wings over to the sides of the shank, so that the hackle has free play above the fly. I have seen this on that gorgeous plate from the Stoddart book, the plate with the Tweed flies. I'm told that this style is not common for the Tweed, however, but I'm not fishing there anyways :D

Anyways, I hope you like my efforts. I'm finally managing to mount these slips without splitting them. So I am enjoying myself :-)

 

Thanks for looking!

Yep I like it. Should get some great movement with that wingset.
