Fly Swap

For the club fly swap I have tied Alan Bitchell's Bi Colour Nymph. It's a lovely simple pattern which produces an effective nymph that is pleasing to the eye. You need to tie a few to get your eye in as the pheasant tail that forms the thorax is brought down the back to form the tail, getting this right is tricky, in this example the tail is bit long.
The fly has been tied as follows:-
Thread - brown
Underbody - copper wire to suit
Body - tan rabbit dubbing
Back/Tail - golden pheasant tail
Rib - fine copper wire
