The wing isn't set right and some of my substitutions didn't work as well as I'd hoped and it's not much of a bass fly, but it turned out to be the most complicated pattern I've tied so far. So, I'm going to post it anyway. laugh

Here's the "Aberdeenshire Dee Tartan"

Thanks for the comments. I tied another one this weekend.

"The Dunt" Salmon fly

Kelson's version of the pattern with a few substitutions, because I don't have some of the materials. smile

Tag: Oval silver tinsel and light blue silk
Tail: A topping and teal
Body: Yellow (well almost yellow), orange, and red (sub for red-claret) dubbing
Ribs: Silver oval and flat tinsel
Hackle: Gray sub'ed for black
Throat: Teal
Wings: Turkey - wrong pattern, should be darker with white tips (I need some tail feathers)
Sides: Jungle C. (the right side should be lower, more like the left side)
