I have started using a scanner for fly pictures. It is a lot simpler.

Whirling Dun
Hook: #12 Grip
Thread: Yellow 14/0 Sheer
Body: Lightly dubbed with fox cub,
used Argentine hare Red Oxide.
Hackle: Medium dun hen.

The Arg hare was a bit of a guess, I think fox cub may be more greyish.
This is from Turton's list (1835).

Donald,

Back in the heydays I used to scan all flies for GFF. That was the reason the site was B/W in the start - I only had a B/W scanner. Color scanners were expensive!

It's been a long time since I did so, because even though it's convenient, photos do come out better I think, and the problem with squashed hackles and large flies getting flattened isn't the same when you take photos.

But of course we have an article on the subject! From 2002!

Nice fly BTW.

Martin
