They are absolutely beautiful Jimmy, I love the copper olive hackle.
Cheers Kev....aye it’s a nice colour,it’s one of the Lakeland range.It only took one and a quarter hackles to fill the body on that fly believe it or not.

Yes mate, Nigel has the colour made up specifically for Lakeland Fly Tying.
That's good going, only a small amount of hackle.

Have you tried Nigels Pale Morning Dun Whitings hen cape?
That's a stunning colour too 👍

It looks just like the copper olive....👍
Not a good picture, it's lighter with a greenish tinge......
Here's pictures of both Copper Olive, and Pale Morning Dun.
The Copper Olive's on the top 👍

Cheers for digging those out Kev....I guess pics can be misleading sometimes but my cape looks like a cross between the two.Not as dark as the top one and darker than the bottom one.

Both capes are well worth having in your 'armoury' Jimmy 👍😊
