    An Irish man after a brilliant days fishing has one too many. He phones his sober mate and tells him about this killer fly. He goes on to describe it and suggests to his sober mate that he dress some up for the following days outing.
    The result was a fly which did not resemble the drunks fly but was a killer.
    Thus the telephone fly.

    I checked with friend Alice Conba in Ireland and this is what she came back with:

    There appear to be two variations of the Telephone fly. The following dressing seems to be the more common:

    Tag: Red floss.
    Tail: G.P.crest.
    Rib: Gold oval tinsel.
    Body hackles: Golden Olive and red (scarlet).
    Body: Pale olive seal fur or sub.
    Throat hackle: Guinea fowl dyed blue.
    Wings: Bronze mallard shoulder feather.

    The second Telephone fly has a claret hackle instead of the golden olive
    and red. The rest of the fly is the same as the first one.

    Cheers,
    Hans W
