An Aussie fly from the late 1800's, supposedly a hopper imitation. I've seen it tied with the GP tippets parallel to the hook shank and as a pair of tips under the wing; did it as a bunch here, similar to Sawada's version. The wing came from feathers found at the butt of a pheasant tail clump; not sure what they're called but they have nice markings.


hook - Mustad 3906 #8
thread - Danville 6/0 black
rib - oval tinsel gold
body - floss orange
underwing - golden pheasant tippets
throat - partridge
wing - pheasant tail tertiary(?) feather


Regards,
Scott

Scott,
The shaping of the wing on this beauty.....that is where you excel and where I fail miserably! Practice, practice, practice....on my part that is!
A grand looking pattern! I love it!

Doug,

Thanks, but credit on this goes to the material; the stuff was quite "sticky" and maintained it's shape despite my best attempts to maim it.

Handsome fly Scott. I'd like to try this pattern on a couple streams in NY. The pattern has such a classic look to it.
