William Blacker: Standard Flies 5. Soldier Palmer Fly

Tip: Gold
Body: Peacock herl
Front-hackle: Two black-red

Soldier 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.

With some floatant this should be situated just in the surface, or fished just underneath the surface for some good action!
