MP's Tucker Chuckar

Experimenting with various materials I came up with this unusually-winged pattern; traditional spey wings are USUALLY bronze mallard, but many other patterns call for dyed goose or swan. Well, I just got a Chuckar Partidge Skin, and had recently brushed my cat (Tucker) and with a bit of goofing around, this pattern was the result!

Hook - Daiichi 2161 Size 1
Body - Dark Grayish Fur (in this case, Tucker's Undercoat)
Rib - Maroon Floss (one strand)
Secondary Rib - Silver Ultra Wire (fine)
Spey Hackle - Grey Schlappen
Throat - Mallard Dyed Maroon
Wing - Chuckar Partridge Flank
Thread - Black
