About the Yellowhead Trout Fly
An adaption of a Bill Sibbons favourite from the days when Bill used to fish at Rockbourne eight days a week. To say that Bill was fanatical about his fishing was a slight understatement!

Having fixed on a splitshot to a size 12 hook, painted it Yellow twice with Cellire varnish, simply apply a small tail and body of cock pheasant tail fibres, and rib with fine gold wire. Add an eye of red Humbrol enamel if you wish.
Comments from other fly fishermen
This is an incredibly good fly for stalking, particularly when fish have become wary of larger offerings. Please please please start offering it again! - 5 out of 5 Stars by David Sells on 21/09/2009
