I think I will stick to your first suggestion. There was not a lot of colouration on it and I think the Thorax might have been the wrong colour as well for the Hornet Moth. Also the Antennae were not Black.
Thankyou all the same kind sir.
I suggest you look at the diagram again from Ian 1104. It sounds as if you tied it all wrong. The flies go first then the bubble float on the end of the line, no wonder you were getting tangles if you put the float before the flies.
Really was a great shop to go to. I used to get my Maggots there as a kid to fish the Wye when John Hatton was there. Later in life we used to go out the back of the shop on a Saturday and just chat and drink tea, proper old time shop. Moved away years later but was sorry to hear of it closing.
