Default 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.
