About the Alexandra Trout Fly

The Alexandra, or Lady of the Lake, as it was then called, was created some time around 1860. It was re-named in honour of Princess Alexandra and was such a popular and successful pattern that its use was banned on some waters.

It is a very effective pattern that has been successfully bringing fish to the net for over 150 years.

Expert Tip:

Great in Scottish Lochs, such as Loch Earn where Brown trout and Rainbows are stocked.

Country of origin for this trout fly: Scotland

This trout fly is designed to be fished on Dams & Reservoirs, Still Water

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 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 on 22/01/2013
