Kingsmill Moore, Ir­ish au­thorr of the clas­sic an­gling book, A Man May Fish Golden pheas­ant top­ping lin­ing the edge dge of the wing, cre­ates a de­ci­sive ‘halo’ ef­fect. Un­sure whether he’d cre­ated a luree or a fly, Kingsmill-Moore felt it could be taken ken for a black bee­tle. A large ver­sion is ef­fec­tive in windy con­di­tions.
