looks like the niagara, but the tail and front portion are different than where I saw it on johns site. Although that could be a variation on his site.

So my final answer is The Niagara
Feathersmc.com: Rooster Body Hackle

On another look, it's gotta be the same fly, the body is the same, just the tail is a slight bit different

Looks like you might be on to something although the wraps at the front of the Niagra are blue and his are black and as you said the tail is diffrent. And where is Niagra a clue in the thread ? Tough one!!

Looks like Latshiki got it!

It is a Niagara. The photo i took of mine is not great, but the front wraps are dark blue.

The clue in the, as in the title of the thread - 'Where' - Niagara Falls!

The tail I've done, is actually how the tail should look. I've seen many versions by more experienced tyers than me, and thats how they tied it!

Well done guys! I Will get it done in a few days when i get the rest of the materials for the wing and front hackle.

actually have a ton of kori, wanted some speckled cinnamon turkey, new GP crests....a man can never have enough crests..

You're right about the tools. Make sure you buy good stuff. i bought cheap bobbins off ebay - they were rubbish, every time used them the thread frayed and broke

So, are you tying salmon flies....get some posted up....
