‘Sun and wind’ as it translates from Welsh gives a good indication of when to use it. A simple wee fly other than the very unruly pheasant neck feather used for a hackle! Well worth having though as it’s a great catcher.

hook: Hends BL300
Thread: black 8/0 uni
body: black ostrich herl
Wing: dyed black goose (subbed for crow)
Hackle: cock pheasant neck - pick the glossy brown ones with black tips
