My uneducated guess is William Blackers Spirit Fly #2.

Good guess. I think the wings are to small and to 'married' for the old style but the not a hint hint? Actually the number three with a more married wing style doen't look bad as a guess either.

A Carnegie has that kind of wing pattern and Wood Duck as well.

Close, but no cigar!
The wing pattern as mentioned is modern - and can be applied to any wing.
The Carnegie has Golden pheasant tail in the wing, this one, if you look closely, has Amherst, no GP.

Processing photos now...any last stabs in the dark??

Ok fellas. Game over. Thanks for playing along.
It seems noone got the answer which was actually quite easy if you'd looked back through the other flies I've posted recently. Some were on the right track with Kelson!

The fly is Kelson's Floodtide, a version of which i posted on Sunday.
I wasnt happy with that fly for various reasons - the head, the hook size, the hidden underwing etc etc etc.

So last night i set about making it again, as mentioned in the first post of this thread.
I did the wing, then half the body, tonight I finished the body, mounted the wing and cleaned it all up.
This fly should have been the 1 year anniversary fly!

I present, Kelson's Floodtide on a 4/0XL reworked Sunday Limerick.

Hope you like it, and if you look at the other one i posted a few days back, you'll see this one is 100 times better, and perhaps the best fly i've ever tied.

Son of a gun! I was going to go through your recent threads and see if I could find the answer, but forgot!

Perhaps the best fly I have seen come from you yet. Then again I don't know much about feather wings.

Very neat tie.

hope you guys had fun with the little 'treasure hunt'
I got the idea from Laurie, he posted some flies a couple weeks ago, then one of the hackles he used from the flies and asked for the name of the hackle.
I think mine was a bit harder than his though.


Thanks for all the comments on the fly too!


Maybe i'll do it again in the future....watch this space...
