A lesser known Dee fly I stumbled across recently. Listed in both the Farlows and Hardy pattern books. In Colin's The Salmon Flies of James Harper as well. A variant to add some spice and tick off the staunch purists.

Sweet...just plain freakin' sweet. The style and character a Dee should have...with a certain added pizzazz.

Nichol...

Great flee.
Very nice job and a fine color combo; looks like some golden olive in the body there.
Very fishy looking.
Thanks,
Tom

Thanks Tom. The body is simply two toned, black angora at rear and yellow angora at front. Perhaps the fluorescent lighting or iphone filters throw it off some. I've had similar comments where purple looked blue.
