Well.... more like poached than inspired :hihi:
Argus wing and teal dyed heron tied on a size 1 Blue Heron/Dave McNeese hook. Big and colorful for winter time.





I just recently picked up these larger size Blue Heron hooks from AO Feathers and they seem to me to be inbetween about a 2/0 and 3/0, very nice hooks and a size I like. I have used the smaller size 3 a couple of times this year fishing for summer fish and was blown away at the ruggedness and holding power of these hooks, they seem to stay crazy sharp forever, no need to reach for the hone thru the entire day! Thank-you for such beautiful and well made hooks Mr. McNeese!

Cheers and tight lines.

Thanks for the kind words fellas! I went thru the added step of a full tinsel underbody on this one in the hopes that it would just glow in the low light of a winter morning tailout.

Dingle.... textbook? Sure "hackle breaking for ham-handed dummies" might be an appropriate title :chuckle::chuckle::chuckle:

Tom.
Very true, I didn't see that before. The fly sort of does have the feel of a Dodger with a short skirt, heels and a bit of lipstick! Hopefully she can attract some attention down-the-pub :chuckle:

BCBound. It's not hard to come by the inspiration with this beauty hanging in my shop!


Tied by BCBound and raffled to benefit Movember/Men's Cancers

Thanks again fellas.

Have a great New Year!
