Blacker’s no 5. The Brown Fly.

Hi guys
Did a bit of a speed fly for the craic, this one took me 1hour to tie. Fly dressers of old must have been quicker?? Probably had all the materials laid out for a batch of the same pattern I would guess!
Anyway, happy with the look of this one, although the wing could have been a tad fuller!!
One it!
Very Blackerish fly Dave!
Happy Trails!

That's the ticket, Dave. Love this pattern along with Rogan's Fiery Brown for the same reasons. I think you've captured the essence. Bodywork is very fine as is the herl head. I think the wing is full enough, maybe set a little bit lower?

My knowledge of Blacker's flies is a virtual zero...but I know what I like when I see it...and this one is well done!!
