    Default Overly fancy trout fly

    Well It started out as a married wing, orange and white goose but I got heavy with a veil of bronze mallard. So I ran a tooth brush through it and this was the end result. On a #8, this was just an attempt at satisfying my curiosity but I think a brownie or a brookie wouldn't mind giving chase.

    Maybe even a steelhead in low and clear conditions.
