    Default 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.

    Another great one! That must be one impressive bench with all the flies on it
