5/0 Double White Wing Ackroyd

This is only the second dee pattern I've tied, the other being the Dodger Snow Fly.

Anyways. Not too difficult on the body, the wings took a couple efforts to get them at the right angles and lengths, but all in all a fun tying experience.

Hope you folks like it too.

Pattern as follows

Hook: 5/0 Gaelic Supreme Harrison Bartleet Dee
Tag: Gold Tinsel
Tail: Topping and Tippets
Body: Rear half yellow seal fur, ribbed with gold tinsel and yellow hackle, front half, black seal fur ribbed with gold tinsel and black hackle.
Wings: White turkey
Throat: Black whiting spey hackle
Cheeks: Jungle cock, short and drooping
Head: Black.

The wing split when I moved it for this photo.
