This beautiful version of Drummond was tied by Master Tyer, Dr. David Burns. See  his notes below about this and The Red Drummond, the other fly he tied for his friend. You can also see more of Dr. Burns' flies at The Flies of Dr. David Burns.

Dr Burns' Notes: ...some flies that I tied for a friend who is maternally a Drummond. These are after J. J. Hardy (1907). The Indian crow substitutes in the Red Drummond are some golden pheasant neck feathers that I tip-dyed crimson and then crimped. I prefer them to those made from ring-neck pheasant, but that's a personal preference. I just think that they look more like the real thing with the reddish-sheen from the golden pheasant. My crimping tool is not as neat as the one shown in Michael D. Radencich's Classic Salmon Fly Materials, but anyone wanting a tool could build the one that he shows. The two flies attached are not for fishing, because if they were, I'd use synthetic eyes rather than gut and I would not bother to tip-dye and crimp Indian crow substitutes.
