This is an old english pattern that was changed when it came over here, like the silver doctor the more colourful wings have been dropped and replaced with mallard flank, this is what has happend to most of the over seas flies as the exotic feathers were very hard to get and it wasnt long untill jungle cock feathers were no longer used both this fly and the silver doctor were still very popular 30-40 years ago for trout especialy in the Taupo region.
