Here's a tying demo of the Grizzly Palmer patterns I tied last night and posted on the blog. You may have noticed the absence of one very important ingredient in the making of this video? These should be great for brown trout anywhere even without the inclusion of a malt whisky.
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.
