And in conclusion this time, I wanted to share this one. It is a fairly standard Rusty Rat, but on larger hooks, I think this fly is bit "empty" (if that makes sense at all), so I added a very sparse spey style body hackle just to "fill in". This is a feather from the ringneck pheasant back patch, stripped on one side and wound on the herl part of the body. Hook is Mustad salmon, size 1.

That's it for this time. Back to the tying bench, I think - I have two weeks on the Surna this summer, and one week in Orkla, + +, so better get those boxes filled up.
