Blacker’s Spirit Fly No1
#1
   

Here is another topping wing fly, harder than it looks I can tell ya!! Tied this one on one of the  Gordeaux hooks that George kindly sent me. I love the hook profile but the finish I feel let’s the hook down. Extremely soft. Used Ryan’s COTR sub and I should have used a bigger slab of woodie.
Anyway great colours and fun to tie. 
I really have to tie some trout flies next but I can’t stop tying these big beasts

Cheers guys

Dave: Love this dressing. Were I to take a stab at it, I would try to emulate much of what I see here; especially the topping applications and body hackles

I agree with Ronn & Dave on this one Dave...well done!! I also agree on the hook's finish. They definitely require the right kind of plastic protection in the vise's jaws and a delicate hand closing those jaws.

solution: tie them smaller or aim for bigger trouts.
