    Chris,

    OK, I think I've got it.

    That's why you said that its easier with feathers that are "cupped" or dish-shaped; like the chuckar partridge. Whereas the woodcock are straighter feathers; requiring more feathers to get the oval profile when tied in on the vertical plane.

    Two of the most unusual (first and last) I've seen in ages; totally new to me.

    The Spa Special

    Hook - #2 - #8
    Tail - A Bunch of Turkey Tail (try to match the grey of the partridge feathers)
    Rib - Silver
    Body - Yellow Mohair or Wool
    Cheeks - Hungarian Partridge (use the feathers that are grey with no thick barring).



    This killer style fly was first created by Leslie Newdick, one of the hosts of the spa hotel in Taupo many years ago. The hotel had the rights to a section of the Waikato river, and it is said to be a very efective fly in that area.

    I think that with all that paratridge its gotta be good

    Chris,

    I like that fly!. Is that two paired partridge feathers per side; two on top and two on the sides?

    Great flies Chris. Funny I just came across this thread. I have recently tied a couple of Killer Style flies. I will post a thread on that, so I don't take away from your's. I am really interested in the Killer Style Patterns especially.

    Thanks Allan, they are both tied on the side of the hook 2 each side one cocked up and one cocked down (matched to cup the hook)

    Hi All.
    ChrisinselwynNZ Nice Flies,you have put some time in tying,photographing & posting them.
    I've been using Kiwi patterns for many years in Australia,my favourites are Hammill's Killer,Mrs Simpson,Lord's Killer,Craig's Nighttime & the list goes on,also I'd seen the Pott's Pet before in Keith Drapers Books,however I haven't tied or used it.
    Cheers Brian.

    Hi.
    Chris,again very well done.
    Pocono a bit of info.
    The method of splitting the feathers with ribbing is a method unique to New Zealand,it is mainly used when tying the Matuka style of Flies(the Green,Black,Yellow,Red etc)where the larger wider hackle feathers are used.
    Also for the Craig's Nighttime I use The Blue Waterfowl Cock feathers as Pukeko are almost impossible to obtain plus a slip of yellow feather over them.
    We used yellow feathers because Jungle Cock was hard to source,being from India it wasn't allowed into Australia for years.
    Brian.
