Flyswap update.

I've been thinking for a while about the fly-swap i'm in atm.
I realised that i find Crazy Charlie and the Purple Zonker to both be streamers and for that reason i've swapped the CC for a no-name wetfly with more of a classical look.

So this is what i'm entering in with on the wet fly!

I'm not in any ways claiming to know classical tying but still,i thought i'd give it a try and thought up a simple pattern.

Partridge,Peacock,Blue rooster hackle, silver tinsel,silver wire and silver braid, yellow rooster cape,black rooster hackle and pheasant tippet feather.

Not the fanciest materials and as you notice i don't have the trademark jungle cock that marks many classic wet flies.
