Tom, as always another beautiful tie, but I think your wing is way too long. :)

BTW, what the heck is the wing???

It's in the name of the fly and the wing is the correct length.
The legs on the fly are Golden Plover light neck feather.The pattern is hundreds of years old!

Tom,

I have a newer copy of T.E. Pritt's Yorkshire Trout Flies. Everything looks great (as always), I guess it is your hook.

Thanks,

John

Tom,
Your Fieldfare Bloa looks like it jumped right off the pages of Pritt's classic! Very well done indeed! These guys had it! Apparently, you do to! Please pick another one from the book and post it here asap! Did you mention above (I can't remember) that you have not tried it out on your waters? We always need a Fieldfare Field trial!
Happy in the den,
Dougsden
