Kate McLaren [Variant] Video Clip

Today I thought I would share a fly I have been tying up lately for my fishing trip in July to Loch Watten in Caithness.This is a Kate McLaren variant, substituting the red game collar hackle for a Sunburst yellow hen hackle. After a wee bit of research the fly patterns that appear to be popular at Watten all incorporate bright gaudy colours. Hence the reasoning for the inclusion of the sunburst hen cape. I'm going to give it some trials at Hillend over the next couple of days.

  1. Nice tip using wire instead of tinsel, I don't like tinsel so I'll be trying this.
