I think a different hook would suit this fly more, or else a lower wing. Tail too high and long, body too short. Took some liberties with the widgeon (gadwell sub) throat and added a wool head. One of the horns is crooked, but it was straight when i put it on....ah well - at least there's stuff to still work on.

I hope someone will explain to me where my post has gone. I note Fred's is gone as well.

Do you mean the one you posted on spey pages? Both yours and Fred's are still posted over there....

maybe a case of mistaken identity on the forums - i post flies all over the place, often copying and pasting the same post!
