Description

Originated by Oliver Edwards. Not only is this fly a fun tie, it is also a great fish catcher. The basic tying is not at all complicated once you've tied it a few times. It is particularly deadly when fished on a short line, thin leader and heavily on the bottom. Hook: Knapek G #10, with added sticky back led foil. Tail: Partridge plume feather. Gills: Natural ostrich herl. Body: Nymph Skin natural. Legs: Golden pheasant tail fibres. Markers used: Tiemco Dark Brown and Yellow Olive. Give it a try - you'll not regret it!
