The Thornfly Dun.

No. 49 From T.E. Pritts book. North Country Flies. This fly calls for a Hackle of landrail under covert. As this material is unobtainable I substituted American Woodcock under covert as Harry Darbee called it a sutitble sub. The fly is tied on a Daiichi 1480 size 14 hook with Orange Pearsalls silk body and a head of peacock Herl.
