Looks like a keeper. It's got a lil bit of shrimp/crayfish to it. Dumbbells to bounce along the bottom and just enough chartreuse to get noticed. I'm sure it's deadly on them.

Claret dabbler - an early attempt to learn how to cloak with Bronze mallard and improve proportions

Need to tie about 100 more to get it right

I hit the vise today after all the Holiday Honey-Do's were done and spun a few wets, a pair of Pink Ladys, a Leadwing Coachman, Dr Burke (minus the JC Santa knows) and some type of variant made from scraps. On 9306 #8s.

I am a huge fan of synthetic flash in wet/streamer/shrimp flies...but the Irish flies just don't need it. In the 1850's, Irish tyers were the first to start putting color into their flies (the "gaudy" fly), and to this day, they sure have a handle on atlantic salmon and trout flies!

Those Irish flies are SWEET. The rest posted on here are very nice as well.
