Earlier this year I got a order for some Jock Scott with heron hackle instead of the normal body hackle, they turned out great, so before the last big trip of the season I tied up a Green Highlander with a similar approach. The fly turned out great – the movement in the water, the profile it had in the river left something to explore more! Sadly no takers, and the last day I fished a new pool with sinking line: the line & hook snagged deep down, so it was pulled so hard the partridge M2 #1/0 hook got bent (that hook can take a lot of beating….). Back to tie up a few more for next season!
These are the sites run by flyfisher.org:
flyfisher.org was earlier known as dryfly.me - the blog is the same, but the content will be more focused on the wider aspects of flyfishing/flytying and the sites that are a part of this site.
