Tail: Mallard, two fibers Body: Cinnamon brown mohair Legs: Cinnamon Wing: Woodcock wing
The Brown Bear from The Art of Angling by William Blacker. The one above is tied in hand on a vintage blind-eye hook, while the three below all are tied for fishing on Ahrex FW580 #10.
The body and hackle could be more of a cinnamon color, but without the dye I chose a brown mohair and legs for this pattern. The woodcock wings gives a overall good balance to this pattern, one I really like, and will bring with me as a allround searching-pattern.
