Default Analysis?

I am one of those fishers that is attracted to certain flies, so, I was on this site

https://www.docsflybox.com/sunshop/

In the upper right there are three flies. the first one, I am seeing hackle tail, and the body, to me looks like Peacock mylar with maybe a peacock rib. Even a jungle cock gill. What you think?

Looks like red hackle fibers for the throat and tail, Peacock body with a pearl mylar back, brass rib and jungle cock cheeks with a yellow thread head. Does that sound right to you?

Default Re: Analysis?

I tried cropping and resizing the image in photoshop but the resolution is poor at best. Basically that's about as big as it gets. Rather than peacock rib, it seems to be peacock mylar with strips of peacock herl lashed along the sides with chartreuse wire. the other option is the body is wrapped with peacock herl and the mylar is just lashed to the top? I guess that is far more likely given the flat appearance to the mylar... Chartreuse beadhead, junglecock gill, hackle tail, same hackle throat. Hardly an expert opinion but that's what I see. Quite the eye-catcher!


EDIT: AAAND looks like Dan beat me to the punch The yellow threadhead seems more likely than the bead I suggested given the slight asymmetrical appearance but that could be due to shadow. I wish they were more polite and gave us a larger photo or perhaps a full recipe!

I think you nailed it. I am looking at it on my Mac Book and not a big picture, but your description puts everything in place.
I think I need to tie this with a bead head and on a scud hook...LOL

I agree with the other, even though I can't see any yellow thread

I went to tools, and blew up the whole web page to 200%. You can see that it's not a bead head when you get it that big. I think a bead head would be a nice touch to. Nice fly. I wonder what they call it?

Bingo! Exactly what I was gonna say. I was wondering about the head, bead or thread, but if you enlarged it then I believe you.

Default Re: Analysis?

If you Rt-Clk on the image, select "view image" and then Ctrl+ a few times you can enlarge the image quite a bit.

It's tough to tell without knowing you you're seeing reflective light or a cast from a flash, but it appears to me to be a green ribbing wire, and POSSIBLY a chatterer or kingfisher feather trapped under it running along the top of the body for the bright blue (?)

And I agree definitely a JC eye tied along the side as a 'drooping cheek'

The head appears to be yellow thread, well lacquered or maybe even epoxy coated.
