Thank you! I havent seen any of Blackers trout flies tied before, so I thought Id give it a shot. Tying these little flies in hand is tricky! I hope to fish it soon.

very well done, and will fish as well as any other fly.

 

with that much attention to detail you can tie it onto an nice period style snelled hook...

 

again well done

Very interesting fly! I like it. Have you used it to catch any fish? By the looks of it, it should be deadly.
