how to tie a dark olive Dun Dry Fly

The Large Dark Olive

here is how I tie ours for the shop
hook size 12 - 18
tail - a few whiskers off a medium olive cape
body - dark olive thread wound close and tight
wings - Starling wing primary feather or substitute
Hackle - black Cock hackle
thats it - very straightforward fly to tie - an absolute must for this time of year in March April

hope this has been helpful
