Silver Secretary 6/0

Used a superb original (Philips????) hook on this one, a present from a certain very fine caledonian.

 

Unfortunately I didn't do it justice - looks OK, like the shape, but the body sucks - I was sloppy tying the hackle tip down with the tinsel.

 

Anyway here it is - anyone know of a source for decent white tip - this was the last of mine.

 

Cheers

Dave

I don't know of any good sources of white tip. I was thinking about ordering the White Tipped Turkey sub from Jens' since it is so difficult to get.

 

I like the overall work of this fly and the fact that you have gotten into your old routine of poor mouthing such beautiful work. :)

 

Glad to have the old Carne back in his usual form!

Dave-Your modesty is surpassed by your skill. It's refreshing to see standards that are reflected in the work. I may have some white tip stashed away; let me look and I will get back to you. Beautiful fly as per usual! PaulR

Hey Dave,

In the immortal words of Willowhead,"THASSS NICE"! :headbang: :yahoo:

Nothing wrong with this one, as far as I can tell.

I don't know much anyway! :rolleyes:

Have a nice day!

Dean
