PETER SAYS: Great attention to detail in what is a relatively simple pattern. The pearl Glister body create san ice spark le contrasted by a front section of red seal fur. The flash of colour mimics that of a small fish’ s gills and is enhanced by a few short strands of pink Flash abou. The whole thing i stopped off with cock pheasant tail fibres with the tips left long to create a tail. A well thought out and very well tied fry imitation.
