About the Alexandra Trout Fly
The Alexandra, or Lady of the Lake, as it was then called, was introduced some time around 1860. It was re-named in honour of Princess Alexandra.
It was such a popular and successful pattern that its use was literally banned on some waters.
If it regained its popularity it would prove to be a very successful fly, as it still does to a few in the know!
Country of origin for this trout fly: Scotland
This trout fly is designed to be fished on Dams & Reservoirs, Still Water fish
Comments from other fly fishermen
This is by far my favourite fly. Fished on a floating line with slow figure of eight retrieve it picksup Rainbows anywhere. I have also had a few good brown trout with this fly. Also tied larger it is great for Sea Trout. - 5 out of 5 Stars by Kyle on 11/04/2010
This excellent fly has taken me many wild browns on Highland lochs when stripped back fast along loch margins on a floating line as a single fly. When the going is tough, this little beauty has saved me many a blank. - 5 out of 5 Stars by Stuart on 22/01/2013
