These ones are for Mikeā€¦.
The two additions he would have added to my last post..šŸ¤£.

I find it quite a challenge wrapping these smaller flies, and this proved a good reminder that if bronze mallard is the wrong size, then it is simply the wrong size. There is nothing you can do.
I tried really hard (knowing it was hopeless) then bailed and used turkey.
ā€¦officially looking for more decent BM.

The body on the Sir Charles is a bit too yellow, but that was the best colour I could manage.

Cheers,

Mike

That Sir Charles is a killer pattern and yours is worthy. Years ago, if it was bright sun and I was approaching a tailout - a Sir Charles would have been quickly tied on my tippet. With fingers trembling with excitement, I would await the screaming of the reel.
