while ago I had my mate Roy Christie as a houseguest. After have
seen one of his wonderfully dyed capes I managed to get him to
take care of a grizzly cape that I had laying in my tying bag.
So now I have had this wonderfully dyed cape lying in my
tyingbag for some time, and today I felt It was time to play
with it. I decided to do "The Royster Doyster". "The Royster
Doyster" is somewhat a little tribute to my dear friend Roy
Christie. Roy was my first foreign flytying mate, now after like
2 years, I consider him one of my best and closest friends.
Offcourse he needs his very own fly, and offcourse if I'm doing
it it has to be something close to my heart, a catskill style
fly, not a quillie though, why.. Roy is more of a dubbing bloke
so as a tribute to him the fly need some fur.
Here´s the stuff I used:
Hook: Partridge The Dry
#14. (Quality bloke- Quality hook)
Tails: Coq de leon
Body: Red fox underfur (Roy, a clever bloke, so is the
Wing: Bronze Mallard
Hackle: Roy Christie special dye
