Duck fly

The tie:
#12 TMC2487 BL hook
black UNI 8/0 thread
pheasant tail dyed black for body
Australian Opossum dyed black for thorax
pearl UNI #16 tinsel
Tiemco Aero Dry Wing
young Chinese rooster hackle dyed black (very soft)

The duck fly is not a grayling fly, as it hatches on stillwaters on late March / early April. It is however the first quality dry fly fishing in spring, something I eagerly await :-)
