I finally got all the ingredients together for myself and got a couple tied up in preparation for the new season in just over a week's time here in Yorkshire
The Appleby Olive:
Hook #16 Hends BL154.
Bead copper coated tungsten 3mm.
Tail: Paintbrush fibres
Body: olive dubbing blend, basically a mix of dyed rabbit and squirrel (golden olive and cinnamon) with a little red, black, olive and peacock glister and/or ice dub for added flash.
Rib: Madeira metallic: (from a sewing shop)
The dubbing can be purchased direct from Andrew Ellis the creator of the Appleby Olive, I contacted Andrew via his Facebook page Andrew's Scruffy Dubbing and together with another couple of dubbing's they arrived with a nice letter in a couple of days.
another pattern I tied up using some of the other dubbing I purchased
