Part III

Select some Amherst pheasant centre tail fibres to make up 4 small bunches each bunch has 2 fibres each of natural, hot orange & deep red. Change the tying thread to red



Tie in and trim each of the bunches of Amherst fibres, quartered around the tube



This shows the Amherst bunches in place



Select a matched pair of JC eye feathers and tie in between the Amherst bunches



After the second JC is tied in, the head is finished with #4 Glo-Brite floss (bright red), and varnished



Slight wetting & sweeping of the finished tube fly gives an impression of what the overall silhouette may appear like during the swing

Take only photographs, retain only memories, leave only a good impression of yourself, perhaps just footprints.

Your lines, your rivers, your way!
