Akroyd – #2/0 10xl


dryfly.me.2016.06.18.akroyd

I have been tying up some Dee patterns for fishing lately, but every now and then you need to challenge yourself! Pulled out the longest hook I have – the Partridge CS15 – a #2/0 10xl hook that is made for classic streamer style patterns, but why not a Akroyd?

This pattern really stretched my material selection, especially the white turkey wing, but I managed to set a ok wing in the end.

The dropping JC could have been longer, but in the end I was happy with the result.

Putting this on a salmon scale shows the length of this massive fly.
