Bjarke is a fly that I primarily designed to make use of these very webby feathers that always seem to be left over on the necks and saddles, when all the 'good' feathers are used. I also wanted to enhance the Magnus for imitation and visibility. It turned out to be a very catching fly, and today I would guess that it's responsible for almost 75% of my fish. See the fly in color in the Fly Gallery.
The olive front part makes a nice looking fly, but I've left it out the later years in order to tie the fly a bit faster. The hackle has to be quite dense. Look at the picture on the top of this page.
