Thanks for the link. I've bookmarked the site for further study.

Dandy wet fly, too. ;)

Nice looking fly, the title to the post caught my attention. Several years ago I tied alot of Irish wet flies and I did a Peter Ross dabbler but it was different to this in that I based on the original using black hackle and teal for the wing. Worked to.
