A Dee variant of the Mar Lodge pattern that I have had a version by Junji Ichimura open in my browser for a long time! Back from vacation and found this to be a good pattern to get started on the autumn tying again.
I haven’t tied much lately, but I got some inspiration to do something new and my eyes was on the Black Prince – many components here that I haven’t done before. I don’t have IC for the body feathers, but Pryce Tannatt lists cock pheasant as substitute, so that is a good start. The wing is a though one: to get all the crests to follow the next one and fill the wing perfectly is not something for the faint of heart! But: a ok start on this one, and I’ve got some guidelines for the next one.
The hook is a #3/0 2xl from Lars Møller
From Erling Sand: “Hvilken Flue” – Tippet & black
Another pattern from Erling Sand “Hvilken Flue”, and it should be good in different sizes, both for sea and brown trout.
