|"A splendid fly on the Spey in dull wet weather. The pattern can be varied for other rivers, when it may have either 'mixed' or 'built wings,' and an ordinary Cock's hackle where Heron's do not serve faithfully; but the speckly characteristics in both parts of the fly must be maintained. I have done better with this fly when using the Crown Pigeon instead of Grey Heron"
