Tied this just experimenting with methods and materials that are a wee bit out of my comfort zone.
Hook, Osprey Standard wet fly VH120 # 12.
Tag/underbody, Gordon Griffiths sheer 14/0 grey.
Body, Pearsalls Gold.
Wing, Orvis Mottled turkey.
Head, Uni thread 8/0 varnished.

I am happy with it especially the body made from the Pearsalls gold, the head of the fly should be better, but I used three different threads to create this fly and I think the contrast came out pretty good.
And I am using my phone camera, its a nice bit of kit, had to get a 25 year old young lady to show me how to use it, she cant tie flies though.
