Melvin Octopus with Davie McPhail

This is another cool pattern with some custom touches. As always, Davie shows us how to tie the fly effortless, this video adds a couple variations at the end. The pattern uses a couple custom dyed materials that might be just a wee bit tough to find at the local shop. Some chartreuse dyed Golden Pheasant Rump, and some fl. yellow jungle cock. These materials really make the fly look cool, but the materials make it a bit tough to tie to the letter. Of course these are optional.
