Tying Instructions: Most modern furs give the correct reflected light colour but an incorrect transmitted light colour of auburn/ orangey brown. The original pattern devised by Rogan of Ballyshannon used fur that had been stained in matured Jackass urine which gave it a warm yellowy glow when seen by transmitted light. A colour reminiscent of the yellow brown of an autumn leaf.
The only way to achieve that effect with modern dyes is to first dye the fur bright golden yellow then overdye it with a mix of gold and fiery brown.
Presentation Tips: Anywhere on, but mainly middle of a three fly cast depending on conditions.
