Classic trout and sea trout fly.

Rib Silver Wire (optional)
Hackle Black Hen
Wing Blue Mallard Drake

Easy but still effective!

Re: Butcher
Hi Ard,

There is a small picture at the top of the page. There is no picture with the recipe because CB didn't add one with the directions. Just another way to do it. We need to figure out how to make the Table available to everyone and easy to use.

Re: Butcher
Here's a variant; the Gold Butcher; a pattern that I exchanged with Chris (ChrisinselwynNZ) on a mini-swap that he and I did earlier this year.

The recipe is straighforward, but working with those mallard McGuinty feathers not easy (at least it wasn' for me); very pliable, but not much substance to them.
