Fenian from Pryce Tannatt - two versions

Been a while since I posted anything here, actually, it was quite a while in the doldrums seeking inspiration to tie salmon flies. But I finally got back on the horse and tied a few flies the past couple of weeks, which I'll periodically post. Hopefully this will get me back on track with the 52 salmon flies project. If it doest work out, we're likely looking at about 45 for the year.

Anyways to the the Fenian's. There are two patterns I konw of for this fly, one from Kelson the other from Pryce Tannatt. I tied the PT version, one in the vise and the other in hand. Both have very different looks despite comprising exactly the same components throughout.

The version I tied in hand comprises a mixed wing, and on a smaller hook, a 1/0 vintage Harrison Hollow point of unknown provenance. A nice little hook, particularly for mixed wing flies. The head on this fly is unfinished, just tied off with waxed thread.
