Black and Red Hairwing

Black and Red Hairwing

Hook: Tiemco TMC 9300 #10-12
Tail: Golden Pheasant tippet
Rib: Oval silver tinsel
Body: Rear red, front black, seals fur
Body hackle: Furnace hen
Wing: Fox squirrel
Hackle: Furnace hen
Thread: Danville 6/0 black

A pattern inspired by Rob Denson’s Red Arrow cruncher. Tied on a slightly lighter hook and with the hairwing for some added buoyancy. Not actually planned any trips as yet to lochs or loughs, but have the feeling this is a pattern well suited as a bob fly for bid browns.
