    Default Try this devastatingly deadly pattern

    For the past 10 years I have been working on a fly to end all flies. A dressing so incredibly deadly it will probably be banned where ever it is seen.

    But I'm going to let you all in on the secret. And I am going to warn you not to overdo it, Whenever I use this fly I limit myself to 3 fish, all returned in a session, and then I switch back to more normal patterns.

    Anyway - here goes:

    This fly must be tied on a silvered 2 x long Shank Kamasiquu NR C 1223 size 11.

    Silk: Pure natural silk
    Tail: Three whiskers from the mask of the European wildscheschwein.
    Wings: Matched primary wing from the Hawaiian p'ouli.
    Body: Fur from White Jade seal dyed puce mixed with Gerbil stomach fur dubbed.
    Hackle: One Body hackle from the Madagascan Red Owl tied palmerwise followed by one neck hackle from Norwegian Blue parrot tied in at head.
    Throat: Feather fibres from Austral Rail secondary wing.
    Rib: oval platinum tinsel.
    Tag: Dodo biots clipped.

    Why not try it out on your next trip.

    HJ, these sound good for our next Coelacanth trip (no lead-core lines or chancers please..). Note the Madagascar and Mauritius origin materials just to add a touch of local authenticity!

    There again for the upcomong trip we would need at least 12 gross of #3 tied on 5 XH, 6 XL. debarbed, forged and chemically as well as laser sharpened hooks.
    Possibly replace the tail with strands of the Siberian Leapoard, for contrast, and the tag with Mauritian Gorilla inner ear fur ?????

    No I think that the upper toe fur of the Northern Manitoba Sasquatch will be better than the inner ear fur of the Mauritian Gorilla.

    Body hair from the North Queensland male tree dwelling funnel web spider would make an excellent dubbing material.

    Aaahhh, well thought out Sir.
    How about using the 2nd to last neck quill feather from the Antartic Great, Seal Carcass Gobbler for the hackle, dyed flourescent pink, ????

    Done that already
    So where are your aternate suggestions for materials ???????

    The site has become so stiff and morose lately we need some light hearted b*ll shit, unless of course you also belong to the "stiff upper lip, drouges and cap, S*ge only , and this is a f/f site so why should we talk about anything else, except for rod building brigade.

    The choice is yours.
