Comments from other fly fishermen

I haven't used this pattern for many years. The last time I did was in the early 1980's on the Bristol lakes, which proved very successful for me. Sadly I have none in my box at the moment and since I shall be spending a week in Dunkeld this June, I thought I would tie a few and try them on their home water - 5 out of 5 Stars by on 19/03/2011
