The combination silver/black/red is never wrong, and not so here either. Tied on a Mustad 71300 #10 with berlin wool as dubbing in the thorax. A pattern that can be changed with longer hackle or more black dubbing, depending on the river and conditions you are fishing in.

My first attempt on a classic wet-fly, took what material I had at hand and proceeded to get something together that wasn’t half bad. Been looking into traditional wet-fly fishing lately and my next project will be to tackle some of Bergman’s “Trout” patterns
