    Beautiful work Trygve as always. What did you use for the hackle? Is that starling?

    That fly looks really nice.
    What is the body material?

    I am preparing for my winter fly fishing trip and your fly can be effective.

    You can use turkey or goose biots ( also biots from other feathers).
    I use a marker pen to just toutch the biot on the fly. The segment looks more marked. On this fly I used a brown waterproof marker pen. The fluffy part of the biots sucks the color from the pen. Be carefull so you don´t color the hole biot.

    One other tip for this fly.
    How to do the soft hackle.

    Place the feather on the side against you ( measure the size for about the lenght to the hook barb). Hold it tight with your thumb and forefinger. When you have done a half turn with your thread loosen up your forefinger and place it hard to the feather/hook again. This will make soft hackle to spin even around the hook.
