On the Bumbles!

You may of course be aware that the bumble style fly is a very successful pattern to have on the top dropper of a team of flies when fishing traditional Loch style from a drifting boat. 
Ive often thought of bumbles to be of Scottish or Irish origin however its surprising to know that they originated in England, Derbyshire to be exact! 
Although they may have derived from south of the border, I've been busy at the vice, tying them for next years trips to the Highlands of Scotland!
