Light Badger Dun Flymph

Post by Old Hat » Fri Apr 12, 2019 9:07 pm

Found myself playing around with a some new hen hackle today. Its a variant badger with a dun center and light cream tips. Tail is mallard dyed tan and the dubbing is red fox on primrose silk.

Excellent! I could think of a number of uses for that pattern.

Thanks gentlemen. I really like how the colors blended on this one. I was after a generic light yellow/creamy dun pattern for pmd, ped and etc. I didn't think Cahill but I can certainly see that as well.

Oh, the hook is a Daiichi 1110 and I raised the eye up a bit.
