Wild Irishman redo
Did some things different
1. smaller hook at 2/0 rather than 3/0
2. skinnier body
3. Narrower tinsels for ribs
4. longer body hackle, which shows up better now
5. Tippet in strands for the under wing.
6. different wing construction - more modern style, to show banskian sub
7. pintail sides rather than teal
8. smaller roof
9. lower wing setting.

This is the new one.

Pre roof, sides, topping etc

the fly from last week.
