Is there a name for this pattern?

Tied this after seeing similar ones few times on the interweb, but there's never a name with the pictures. Anyone know?

I can't name it but I do like the way you created the tapered body. It makes me want to look for more of your fly tying.

Sorry to disappoint you Ard, but that body isn't tapered. It's an accident of camera angle. There's two stray hackle fibers that give you the impression. I do want to try a tapered body now though, it does help the fly "flow". Hopefully I can tie a tapered body that is good enough to post here!

I think it does need a name if it doesn't already have one. There have been days that this is the only streamer the brownies would touch.

Looks like a really sexy fry pattern to me.

This is very similar to a Peter Ross.
Which is typically a Sea Trout fly, but has taken it's fair share of grilse.

Use small thread and some magnification for the foundation.
