I thought it was about time I made another tying video. This is what I came up with this afternoon. I've never fished this pattern before but I think it has all the ingredients to be a trout catcher. The mix of possum and dubbing enhancer brings the fly to life and gives its plenty of sparkle and light which should I hope catch the trout's attention.
I have been at the tying bench tonight tying up a few Clan Chiefs. This fly is a favourite of mine. It is a modern day traditional fly created by an Orcadian man,John Kennedy. it was originally designed by him for migratory fish. It also has a good reputation on the mainland for brown trout. Its creator was clearly inspired by the Kingsmill - Moore bumble patterns. This version I have tied tonight is a little bit over dressed as it was originally intended to be tied sparsely. I will let the trout decide.
