very nice indeed Ben !!
they are just my cup of coffee Ben, nicely tied, Sturdy's Fancy probably my all time favourite :)
I'm a bit disappointed George, I forgot to change he thread over for the Sturdy's. Should be purple.
tbh Ben I've got sturdy's tied in purple, black and even brown and they are all taken quite freely.
I don't suspect for a minute it'd make a shred of difference, more that I feel I hadn't tied it properly. I specifically bought the purple thread for this fly. I was originally going to tie the Sturdy's for the LTC auction that danielp had arranged but the white hackle didn't turn up in time.
