Im fond of this dressing. I muted the colors a bit usin some olives mixed with the greens. I added the mallard as well. Seemed like it should be there.

Body is a blend of hares fur dyed yellow olive, and highlander green seals fur.

Dear MATT,

 

The 'best' I have seen it tied by somebody...even there was a time ...'this one' didn't came a whole whole lot to 'our' forum screen 

 

Exeptional 'flow' tooooo (euh again hahahahaa)

 

and yes why not ...tied on a 'light bronzie' instead of a 'blackie' !

 

pstttttttttttttttt it seems that expetional one 'IMO'...was posted by YOU in 'serie' YOU launched...it was one of Your : FF flies for the 'Blackwater'....ah ofcourse as Jim gifted with the "Faughn Purple" or or why not that 'last' one pictured (Lady ?) are all 'super looking' and 'tied'.

As with all your flies, this one has a very traditional look to it. I often find myself seeking out your posts when I am looking for inspiration.

Thanks for the kind words gents!

 

I have tied the fly before, and there was a nice vintage one that came over on ebay from pickybanjo some time back now.

Magic stuff, Matt. The very essence, to my eye's at least, of just HOW it should be done.
