Lot of the BLACKER flies have some PURPLE in the body or show it as a body hackle or even frontcollar...
Also some of the patterns to find in MALONE's his book...as mentioned the pattern by Eunan but also some others...
Also some of the patterns to find in a Book on Angling (FRANCIS FRANCIS) ...asHornets N°3 A. Crawshay, N°6 for the Eden, Parker N°1 for the Lune.......
I tied myself out of Malone's his book the "PURPLE BODY"
I tied myself out of Blacker's his book (euh Mr. Bob Frandsen his BLACKER COMPENDIUM to be compeltly exact)...one out of the serie for the river Ness serie, a duo out of the serie for the river Findhorn serie, a duo of the 1841 serie for the river Bann !
I gift YOU a photo of 4 of those above mentioned flies I tied and launched uphere on the forum...
But as Mr. CARNE says and brings over (he can know it as not one...the existing ones are indeed not top hot classic flies but rather obscure / allmost forgotten patterns...
