Rosy Dawn

Title should Read Rosy Dawn.....
This is the second time I've tied this pattern, but I like the last one (couple years ago much Better.

Not a complicated fly, with all materials available from your local fly shop, perhaps with the exception of magenta hackles, which I dyed myself.

THe hook is a Noble DS from Ronn Lucas, which has a slightly longer shank that fits the pattern well in my opinion.

The eagle eyed among you will notice a slightly different eye on this one, twisted wire. There is some precedent on vintage flies for wire eyes, rather than silkworm gut.

Hope you like it.

Looks really nice, but all your work is very good. You have a gift, that ability to build a beautiful classic.

Alec Jackson has a collection of these that were tie for him by many talented fly tyers. Alec's wife's name is Rose; hence, the reason he has gotten so many ROSY DAWNs over the years. Yours is worthy of being part of the ones he has.
