HENRY SCHEMBRI HOOK: Size 12 wet fly THREAD: Black 6/0 TAIL: Or­ange Glo-Brite No.8 TAG: Red holo­graphic tin­sel RIB: Fine sil­ver twist BODY: Black suede che­nille THROAT HACKLE: Red Glo-Brite No.4 floss and Green­well hen hackle WING: A pair of Green­well hen hack­les PETER SAYS: Henry Sc hem­bri’ s Au­tumn Spe­cial is an el­e­gant lit­tle fly and a re­ally in­ter­est­ing take on the chal­lenge. Although it has the feel of a wet fly it ac­tu­ally has more in keep­ing with a tra­di­tional stream er pat­tern, al­beit one tied small. The name comes from the fact that the pat­tern in­cor­po­rates some au­tum­nal shades from the or­ange of the tail to the brown of the wing. A well-de­signed pat­tern that shows some very nice skills.
