Bracken Clock

Finally I found some time to hit the vise tonight, I got my promotion hooks from Partridge last week and I have wanted to get my sticky ones on the hooks for several days now. Unfortunatly I had to use the nice weather this weekend to sort out some stuff on our house, you know some of those "will do later" kind of things.
A fly that have caught my attention this year is a older North Country fly, The Bracken Clock. I got introduced to it by a friend on facebook, Bengt Andersson, he and his friend have caught loads of fish on it, so offcourse  I had to try it out. From pictures I have seen I thought that the fly had a solid peacock body, but a couple of weeks ago I saw a Picture in an old Veniard book and the body on that one was made by a red thread and peacock herl. So I had to try one of those on the Partridge Spider Hook, I used size 16 as I Think that size will be great to try on the Grayling in Gysinge later this fall.

Well I am still slightly confused by the background of the fly, I will get back to the blog to tell you all if it worked or not and hopefully with som more info about the fly. If anyone of you guys have some info, please let me know.

Over and out
