Cheers Steve,
Thats an old mustad limerick 3/0. It had a massive strait eye and a short shank. Bought a 100 of them from kenhook for 7.00!! Straitened the eye and filed it to some sort of taper. Love the bend and barb. Now they are long shank, perfect for jointed bodies!!

I really like this. The taper on the body hackles is great.

I like this fly a lot. I been a fan of these longtailed flies with shorter topping for a long time.
All the best
