Caithness on my mind

First of all I would just like to say its is with great delight that I noticed that Davie McPhail hasn't ditched his old faithful tying shirt after all, as you will see if you have a look at his latest tying vid lol!. I digress. I was in the mood to do a bit of tying this afternoon and tied a few loch style flies, Recently I have been tying a few patterns in the same style as my latest Charlie McLean fly which you may have seen a few posts ago. the essence of these patterns is that the back half is a tinsel and the front half tied in the same manner as a Loch Ordie tying a few feathers in one after the other. I tied these with Caithness Lochs in mind. Ive not got a name for these new patterns I'm open to suggestions.


  1. A lovely hairy fly that looks like it would do well pulled through a wave - A Hillend Hairy?

  2. Yeah a very apt name.Love it! Plenty Hairys in the Cruix area! lol
