This is the brown hackle peacock, an old but proven wet fly. You've got to admit it just looks like something a fish would want to eat -- I mean you can never go wrong with peacock herl and a red tag right? It's also fairly simple to tie.
The recipe is:
Thread: black 6/0 or 8/0
Hook: wet fly size 10 to 16
Tag: red wool (scrounge it from a knitter)
Body: peacock herl ( I use two twisted into rope)
Hackle: brown (I prefer hen)
