Blind Boy Fuller tied by Ronn LucasMaterial List:
This fly was inspired by a B&W fly that Paul Rossman and someone else (pardon me for forgetting the name) posted not long ago.
The hook is a 7/0 Harrison & Bartleet. Wing is Giant Kingfisher, tag is Siamese Fireback Pheasant flank feather barbs. Glass bead. Body veils are Penguin as is the topping over the throat. Rear body segment veil is Vistoria Crowned Pigeon. Throat is Cockatiel and Zeebra Finch. Sides are Rintail and Silver Fox. I put a dash of red and the JC for a little colour on essentially a B&W fly.
The head transparency is the best I've done so far. You can see the materials under the thread and looking at the head straight ahead, all of the preceeding material butts are visable. It's a bit like looking at the fly's bones or soul. I like the look but many won't. Tying Instructions:
