#2 for the Taw and Torridge 1/0 Low Water

Recommended Posts

This is actually a bit of a variant in that it should only be light yellow wool on the body and there is supposed to be a bricky orange throat - I felt the blended body 'heated up' the throat section sufficiently - and given I'd already Low Waterised the pattern I wasn't too bothered.

 

One from Mr Treverton's neck of the woods (the long straggley bit on the bottom left of England).

 

Had enough with tying on those shark hooks for today.

 

Cheers

Dave

I would love to comment on the fly but it is too small for me to see. I will try later when I put my glasses on. ;)

Dave:

 

The whole fly is a lovely punctuation mark. Short, to the point, and in this case ( no surprise here) beautifully dressed. The floss and it's color in the tag is

t*ts....or so we say in the states
