Beautiful fly. Thanks for sharing Hans.
This fly is tied, I believe, on an emerger hook?
What is it representing, and, where and when do you fish it?
Surface skimming top (or "bob") fly, in the Irish lough tradition.
I am optimistic it may work (still to be proven) as a wet to chase SRC (See Run Cutthroat).
The hook selection is my pref :cool:
A lake fly skimming the surface to imitate:_____________
That is not how it works on the loughs. These patterns skim/bob the waves, and bring up browns - they generally do not imitate any specific bug.

Many argue it somehow imitates a caddis.......and the Rpyal Wulff also thought by many to represent a Caddis..
