Gold-Green Fly
as per Knox
Hook: Partridge Single Wilson (Lightweight) #4.
Rib: 5 turns of orange silk floss, with medium flat gold tinsel in between, and fine gold oval as a counter-rib.
Body: olive Berlin wool.
Hackle: natural reddish brown Spey cock substitute, tied in at the front. by the tip, leading the flat gold tinsel.
Wing: bronze mallard, tented and very low, horizontal style.
Head: brown.
Note: A classic Spey River fly. The brown thread in the head is my own embellishment, as I found the black thread on the black hook caused the head to get lost in it all. The classic color for the head is black.
