Dragons Tooth (Variant)
Mike Kinney's Dragon's Tooth
Variant as i used whiting spey for the hackle as i didnt have purple schlappen

Pattern As follows

Hook: Blue Heron #1 (or your hook of choice)
Tag: Silver Tinsel
Body: Purple wool
Ribs: Flat and oval silver tinesel
Hackle: Purple schlappen
Throat: Teal
Wing: Two red GP flank feathers (Tented) flanked by two shorter yellow GP rump feathers
Head: Red

First time i've tied this fly. Didnt quite nail the tented wing, but i'll give it another go soon.
Basically i tie flies to see how they look and to learn new things, usually they're never fished, and just end up lying my bench.

Re: Dragons Tooth (Variant)
Another great one! That must be one impressive bench with all the flies on it :)
