Trout Fisherman (UK) - - Fly Masters -

AS its name sug­gests, wing biots from both goose and turkey fig­ure highly in this pat­tern. The body is formed from a dyed black turkey biot, which be­ing rel­a­tively large, works beau­ti­fully pro­vid­ing a nat­u­ral ta per while nu­mer­ous tiny fil­a­ments soft en the over­all ef­fect. The rib, or two ribs to be pre­cise, are ap­plied with great ac­cu­racy–the gaps between each turn be­ing al­most iden­ti­cal. The com­bi­na­tion of black feather fi­bre and red tin­sel looks par­tic­u­larly ef­fec­tive and is ac­cen­tu­ated by the sparkling turns of fine sil­ver wire. This fly fits the brief per­fectly and is ex­tremely well tied, a wor­thy winner.
