Johnny's A.G.P. wetfly

  I like making a wetfly from a bird skin, and this one comes all from a golden pheasant skin. The fly is very buggy and the trout sure like it. A golden pheasant skin is a wealth of materials for tying flies. Every bench should have one at least.  Twist of these guys up and give them a go in up coming months, the fly has served me well and I hope it will do you well also. 

Hook- Daiichi 1560 #12-14
Thread- Uni 8/0 black
Tail- Golden pheasant tippet
Rib- Small silver oval tinsel
Body- Red tip marabou from rump of golden pheasant
Thorax- Just a bit of the red tips from the marabou dubbed 
Hackle- Rusty grizzly shoulder feather
Wing- Golden Pheasant secondary feather.
