About the Kingfisher Butcher Trout Fly
This Kingfisher Butcher variant, also know to some as the Levan Variant, is a relative of the Bloody Butcher pattern created in the 1830s by Moon & Dewhurst.
It has proved to be successful on still waters for many years.
Angling's problems are never solved. They rise anew with each new pool and each new day.
