Found this on a U.K. site. The kind of fly you fish in the rocks without a second thought; takes about 5 minutes to tie, less if you don't care about being neat.


hook - Mustad 9671 #8
underbody - .025 non-tox
thread - Danville 6/0 brown
rib - small wire gold
tail/abdomen - peacock herl
thorax - ostrich herl yellow
hackle - Indian hen
bead - 4mm gold

Holy Cow Scott! This one is beautiful! Rather buggy looking too! The yellow ostrich herl "shinning" thru the India hackle leaves a very big impression upon me and also the fish it encounters! It is very well done as always Scott! Also, you peacock body work is to die for!!

Nice. I use this with a dark olive ostrich herl thorax and a copper TBead. Works well...
