7| Autumn Special
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.
