Hi folks.
Here is another from the blacker bible! I tied this one for fishing so not to fussy about all the tiny details and for a practice run. Faults; tail has a twist in it, both the toppings are a tad long and the married wing section came apart, but hey it's for the river. If the water ever drops I'll give it a go. Thanks Geert for the macaw body feathers and I've some more on order so I'll give it another go when they arrive

Over all I'm happy with quite a tricky fly ( I think)
Comments welcome

If the fish don't like it...just send it to me - LOL  Cool pattern, and I think Mr. Blacker would approve.

Hi Dave

Thanks for sharing this one.

Is yellow a good color there?

Hope you're well.
