Conba's Telephone Fly #1 (variant)

Image

Image

Image

Apparently the original Telephone fly came about from a late-night conversation between 2 somewhat inebriated gentleman. Although the colors can change, the main ingredients are floss butt, gp crest tail, 2 hackles of differing colors, jay (or sub) shoulder and bronze mallard wing and hackle. As you can see I forgot the floss tag on this one - the pic on Hans site doesn't have it but the recipe does; if I have a few minutes (packing up for the trip west so it may have to wait a while), I'll try a proper one.

hook - Mustad 3906 #8
thread - Danville 6/0 black
tag - Danville Depth Ray fire orange (missing)
tail - golden pheasant crest
rib - oval tinsel gold
body - dubbing pale olive
body hackle - yellow/red
shoulder hackle - Mearns Quail (jay substitute) dyed blue (Regatta - 3/4 Tsp Rit Aquamarine, 1/4 Tsp Rit Royal Blue/4 cups water)
wing - bronze mallard


Conba's Telephone Fly #1

Image

Image

Image

Added the tag for a proper version. Wing on this one is rolled/folded as opposed to stacked/pinched on the first one because not all bronze mallard is alike.
