Saturday Night Special
R. J. Brown
Hook: Partridge Bartleet Supreme CS10/1 #2/0.
Tag: fine silver oval tinsel, 5 turns.
Rib: fine silver oval tinsel.
Body: rear 2/3 medium flat copper tinsel; front 1/3 copper metallic fast descent dubbing over medium flat copper tinsel.
Hackle: gray dyed burnt goose shoulder Spey hackle, one side stripped, over front 1/3 only.
Collar: orange dyed mallard flank.
Wing: matched bronze mallard tips, as long as the hook, tented and low, one side stripped, tied by the shaft, with the shaft outward, and the barbs flowing straight back.
Head: brown.
Note: The wing on this fly is my own innovation. I was looking for a way to use the bronze mallard tips left over after the sweet spot had been used up. What I came up with was a very mean looking fly, looking somewhat like a B-2 stealth bomber.
