    Default Dutch Courage (Fallon's Angler)



    Sometimes you see an pattern and wonder, will it work? This is one such, a pattern from Issue 10 of Fallon's Angler after the anonymous author 'Super Fly Guy'. The construction, with a combination of cock and soft hackle intrigued me and it certainly looks like it would make a decent enough mayfly emerger pattern.

    Interested to know if anyone has come across anything similar, i.e. cock and soft-hackle combination?

    Hook: Partridge 15BN Klinkhammer size 16
    Body: Yellow superfine dubbing
    Thorax: Peacock herl
    Hackle: Grizzly cock
    Soft Hackle: English Partridge
    Thread: Benecchi 12/0 Olive

    Regards,

    Iain

    According to the accompanying story, and I've no idea if it's a fishy tale or not, the original target was Rudd in "stagnant Dutch canals" but it caught a 2kg trout!

    I think it's a very bonny fly and one I'll be copying

    Combining soft and stiff on a straight hook there's the jingler, another lovely fly: example 1 example 2 example 3
