Thanks mate,
Alder fly is really old imitation (of insect from Sialis family that is spread everywhere in Europe) and I think it is from same golden age of tying in Britain as Leadwing Coachman.Original was made from peacock hearl died in magenta color.Now then,that magenta color is something that I never could find (and for many years before internet and this live communication with people around Globe not even possible to translate on my language because when you translate something it is not same as when you see it in flesh) and I made it ,as usual ,from things I had looking at real insect.
Body of this fly is made with peacock and then ribbed with tick claret silk.When that combination gets wet it looks like one shade of claret which our insects have.
And I do prefer collar and than put the hackle down.It is much more durable that way.

I couldn't tell from the pic if it was a peacock herl body with red silk of if it was a silk body ribbed with herl. But, thinking about it a little more, you wouldn't get many uses out of a fly with a herl rib, would you...................

Anyway, very nice flies there.

Unh...there are a number of excellent patterns that use a peacock herl rib...just twist it around wire or thread for durability...

MJ, Those are nice!

Is that a quill body on that pattern?

Planettrout, yes, that's right; but the herl that I thought I was seeing on MJ's Alder pattern looked to be too thin to be a combination of thread or wire wrapped with herl. That was the reason for the reference to a herl alone rib.
