Oreglini Fly Exquises Taquine
- Tied on Partridge Hooks
- Original Dressing
- Size from 18 to 12
These Mouches Exquises have a body of tying silk, and two hackle collars. One is at the rear, at the bend of the hook, and the other in its usual place, at the head. Between the two collars there is a clearly defined space. No tails, wings, or elaborate bodies. This silhouette is deliberately nominative. It might suggest the body of an ant or the coupling of a pair of some insect. They are at the other extreme from the imitationism of Halford, Skues and De Boisset.
