Grouse & Orange Variation

Post by joaniebo » Thu Oct 31, 2019 10:51 am

Quite a few years ago, possibly after reading Roger Fogg's "The Art of the Wet Fly", I tied a few soft hackles using English Red Grouse hackles, orange silk and a seal-fur sub for the body / thorax. Hooks, as usual, were Daiichi #1550 in size 14.

Very nice pattern. I will have to tie a couple up.
“THE ART OF THE WET FLY”by Roger Fogg has a wealth of information.
