Seems like the combination of peacock and barred hackle has "it" as far as the fish are concerned. Thanks for sharing your version, Bill.

interesting combination of materials, no wonder it works well. I like the use of red hackle fibres for the tai, will have to tie a few of these. Thanks for sharing... K

Don't overlook this as a midge pattern in size 20-22 fished just under the surface. It will fool some tough fish sometimes.
