Let’s continue with the Teno series by Erkki Vaalama. As mentioned on the first pattern these first two were actually the only original patterns by Vaalama and the other variations of Rönkä’s old patterns. Teno 2 features interesting short veilings from golden pheasant tippet that sets it apart from the rest of the series. The wing is a typical light mixed wing used on harling flies in the Northern parts of Scandinavia.
