Loved John Nicholls Black Phantom fly but couldn’t quite match the blue gray (to my eyes) Pukeko feather with mallard flank I tried to dye. After several attempts to match that color, I decided to tie this similar pattern using a gray dyed flank feather.

I also added a few wraps of black soft hackle as a collar. It’s a fun tie and pretty easy to do. I think it will fish but am still trying to get the dye color correct.

Thanks for posting the pattern John.

Real jungle cock?

Yes, real JC, but the fish don’t care if you use a sub or even an eyed starling feather Gary.
