About the John Storey Trout Flies Fly

Over the years there have been many, many variants of this very popular and successful fly.

Creator of this trout flies fly: John Storey

Tier of this trout flies fly: Mandy Shelvey

Country of origin for this trout flies fly: England


  • Hook : 10-14 (old numbers).
  • Body : Plain bronze peacock herl, unribbed.
  • Hackle : Stiff dark red game.
  • Wing : Tip from a speckled mallard breast feather, tied in front of hackle and pointing forward over the eye.

The original wet fly dressing had an under body of fawn wool, to better absorb water, and mallard wing fibres sloped back over the peacock herl covered body. The fly has undergone a few changes down the years.
