Been on an imposed exile from the vise for the last couple week as my tying area being used for storage due to some work being done at home. Last night i salvaged materials to tie the Edwin Barry posted a couple weeks back.Really nice fly, pretty easy to tie. I wasnt focusing too much on perfection on these flies, just some relaxing tying. Deviated from the pattern slightly in that i used yellow goose shoulder in the wing instead of yellow macaw. The head is wool, though it might have been mohair on the one i saw. Size 2
Kingsmill - Per Malone, it can be tied small for trout, or large for Salmon, this is size 2 salmon iron
Faughan Purple - Malone, named after the River Faughan in my home country of Northern Ireland.
Not the best rendition and there is much i would like to redo on this one, but you get the general idea. I believe this is a 1/0
