    the stated hackle is Rhode Island Red which is next to impossible to obtain
    When I was a child we used to have about a dozen of these in our chicken run! That was only forty years ago!

    Super looking fly, I am at my vice tying some lures to (I hope) bank fish Rutland Water before it closes. I shall make one of these. Thanks!

    Fly tied. I made two changes. First to make a "tag" near the hook bend when putting on the gold wire. And second, remembering what Tome ivens wrote, using a mixed "twist" of one strand peacock herl and the other strand of green ostrich herl.

    It being written that together, when wet the effect has to be seen to be believed. I hope the Empingham trout believe it too.

    Isn't this, without the palmering the old "Dambuster"?

    I have made a temporary solution but seem to have run out of space.

    Nice tie by the way.
