hi all

another one for the hair wing box

this i belive was first tied by warren duncan

when deciding on a green fly for the box i flipped a coin between this and another fly called galway green.

no point in having 2 green flies of same construction in the box

its tied on a size 6 not sure type of hook

hope you all like it

all the best
john

a cosseboom! Very nice fly and effective for the atlantics! That fly is tied in a rainbow of colours, you could have a fly box filled with just that pattern in different colour variations.

Hi John
Great fly
A nice hair wing That will do well in most salmon rivers. The hook looks like a low water hook but I am not sure.
I agree with Phil. You can convert most salmon flies into the Cosseboom style.
A minor detail to the tie. Be careful where you tie in the oval silver for the rib (your close up picture gave you away) rolleyes.gif

Regards
Jens

Nice fly........you seem to have a natural tendency to drees a fly somewhat sparesly...........which very often can be a very good thing. You flies have a look of fishability to them. mark..... wink.gif
