A truly lovely fly, Hollywood, but please may I ask where you found your WOIGO seal's fur and cock hackles? Thank-you.

Older stock. Originally from Geoff Cherrett. Sam McGowan/Irish Fly Supplies does some nice WOIGO. Alternatively you might be able to find a Wapsi Chinese Cock Cape in amber which is very close if not spot on.
