The Fly is a Variation of the original Diawl Bach. I wanted a fly that looked relatively natural but with some added attractor point.
Many people ask why I use Peacock Eye instead of Peacock Herl, well most naturals have a segmented and the peacock eye gives this effect on the body of the fly.
The beauty of a Diawl Bach is that it can simulate a number of different terrestrials in the water hence making it a very productive pattern.
