William Blacker: Standard Flies: 6. Red Palmer Fly

  • Hook: Vintage blind-eye #8
  • Body: Red or orange mohair
  • Rib: Gold twist or tinsel
  • Hackle: Two red, from tail to head

Red Palmer Fly 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. I chose orange for the body here (the pattern say either red or orange)
