Raven wing

So today is vise-day finally ;-) Had played with some red and black winged fly in my head lately. The wing is of raven tail feather. Originally I wanted to make the underwing of red squirrel tail hairs, but forgot the tail at work, so used so red GP flank feathers instead. Also wanted to try the peacock hackle on the red silk combined with black heron on peacock SLF prism dubbing and a throat of blue peacock breast feathers. All in all it turned out decently. What do you think? ;-)

The herl rib adds a lot to this fly very much, very very clean dressing all around. Can't go wrong with Red and Black!

Great tie, the color combination sets the Peacock breast feather off really nice. A fly!
