Lars,
that is one fab pattern ,sort of irish shrimp fly ,goes 20th century .really good dressing mode ,lots of glue to make the fly last
a la Dick walker .Sparse on the hackles with some meat in the dubbing !
Just wondering what the dubbings were are the ready made or custom ,my danish is similar to my Latin ( non existant)

It’s a very nice fly indeed. Looks similar to some of my palmers!
It's an exploration; bring a flyrod.

Thanks! I didn't use the same materials as the originator does, as I didn't have them on hand. However, the dubbing so you see are Ice Dub for the purple part (Lazer Purple and purple 50/50 mix) and UV Nice Dub by Fly Scene. UV Nice Dub is a favourite of mine, rally nice dubbing, nice colours and very easy to work with.
