Sir Richard (Pryce-Tannatt)

Sir Richard

The Sheppard, Richard  and Sir Richard were tied by Dr. David Burns. You can see many more of Dr. Burns' flies at The Flies of Dr. David Burns.


Dr. Burns' email about this fly: "Here are two flies that went into a frame for a customer's son. He wanted an original fly so I came up with The Sheppard, Richard named after his son. It's colourful and made the Dad happy! It went into a frame with a version of Pryce-Tannatt's Sir Richard tied for large hooks with a "heron" hackle. The tail veil got a bit mussed for this photograph, too bad. Note my previous observations about using Pryce-Tannatt's descriptions!"
