I make and use many very similar flies, you'll catch with that. If ever you want, look up the recipe for Pryce Tannat"s version of the Jock O' Dee. I've used that pattern with great results on steelhead - rainbow - char and grayling. I make them on Bartleet #4 using BEP for the hackle. I've never felt the need to make any larger because the #4 does so well.
Really nice work Matt :smokin::smokin:
Love the colours and the profile on this one !! This Dee will hunt well for you I'm sure .
Stellar tying my friend
I've been tying a pronounced tail on all my flies for the past few seasons with good results . Next thing you know , you'll be tying forked tails too :hihi:
