A Greenwell variant - it works!

A very nicely made generic nymph - it worked for me first time out - four nice wild Devon brownies.

Golden Olive CDC

They seem to be fine - but will not know if they live up to their boyancy reputation until I use them on the end of a line.
I gave five stars in anticipation of good things to come.

Orange hook/hackle gauge
Wednesday, 4 March 2015  |  Kenneth

The surface of the guage is orange - unfortunately mottled with black undertones. This renders the guage reading a bit difficultn abd the orange colour is a difficult background on which to see some hackle colours.

The price is good though.
