Nondescript often equates versatile and effective. This has to be a good thing, no? :cool:
Hook: Grip 12804BL #14

I do wonder what the good dame would make of that fly Hans. Her selection, I am informed, didn't have any wound hackles. As for me that looks perfect for the brown trout lochs. As I've just resolved to fish them rather than "bathe" in them next time out I may just tie some up. Did you make your dubbing brush?

Very nice. I bet that would be serve as a good March Brown emerger, Hans.
Yes...No....well actually, I don't know.....but based on my gut feel alone it looks like it might catch fish pretty well! It just plain looks fishy to me.
I think Dame Juliana would approve.
I love this pattern Hans. It looks buggy and tasty !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Paddy, Don't be tempted Its not edible! ;)
Might that, as dressed, be a wet fly for a Calibaetis??
