Tail- Bronze peacock (can be left out and is not on the wet)
Body- tied plump bronze peacock

Nice flies, Chris.

I'm a big fan of peacock herl; bodies, wings, whatever. They just plain work in the water. How do you get the bronze color? Do you leave regular herl out in the sun?

In the land of almost every type of fly tying material that you can imagine, I still have a lot of trouble sourcing coch-y-bondhu hackle. On the other hand, furnace is plentiful.
