    Default A still water fly and a wet Coch-y-Bondhu

    Loves Lure (tyed as a dry it can be tyed as a wet too)

    Tail- Bronze peacock (can be left out and is not on the wet)
    Body- tied plump bronze peacock
    Wing- Peacock sword (slanted back on the wet)
    Hackle- Black
    Head- black

    This is a very good still water fly for NZ while it is not the classic dressing this is the one that I like



    The Coch-y-Bondhu

    Tag- Gold foil or tinsel
    Body- tied plump bronze peacock herl
    Hackle- Coch-y-Bondhu (furnace hackle with black tipps you can just see the black in the pic)



    The Coch-y-Bondhu can also be dressed as a dry

    Nice flies, Chris.

    I'm a big fan of peacock herl; bodies, wings, whatever. They just plain work in the water. How do you get the bronze color? Do you leave regular herl out in the sun?

    In the land of almost every type of fly tying material that you can imagine, I still have a lot of trouble sourcing coch-y-bondhu hackle. On the other hand, furnace is plentiful.

    Chris,

    That Coch-y-Bondhu is rather rare isn't it heh, heh,

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.
