HOOK: Size 8 heavy­weight wet fly THREAD: White 30 de­nier Nano silk BODY: Pearl Glis­ter sparkle dub­bing HEAD: Red seal fur and chartreuse Flash Bright RIB: Fine gold wire BACK AND TAIL: Cock pheas­ant tail fi­bres EYES: 3mm sil­ver and black epoxy eyes GILLS: Pink Flashabou

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.
