I mistakenly put a loch fly into Stevenís post on his partridge spider, so hereís another couple for the lochs.

Crackers Eddie   :z16

We'd better copy that one over here too then  :z12



Hereís one for the lochs later this year. I do these in golden olive and claret versions.

That one was a bit too tasty for me not to start producing copies of  :X2
Whats the blueish front hackle ? I used blue guinea fowl.....

James the front hackle is the dyed blue grizzly hen cape in the picture. I now replace jay with this on a lot of flies.

I got the cape along with a selection of other colours from Lakeland. These are whiting exclusive hen capes and they are perfect for traditional wets and salmon patterns.
