Trout & Salmon (UK) - - Trout at twilight -

Hook Size 12-14 dry-fly Body Dark brown seal fur mix Rib Flu­o­res­cent yel­low UTC wire (small) Wing Dark coastal deer hair Tho­rax Dirty-yel­low seal fur mix Head hackle Dark fur­nace cock The Welsh­man’s But­ton is a pro­lific in­sect on some Ir­ish loughs and can pro­duce lively sport dur­ing the day and evenings from late spring to early au­tumn with the peak hatches in June/july. The trout re­ally “dig” the fly and this pat­tern works ex­tremely well. Fish it singly or as part of a team. Again, clip the bot­tom of the hackle.
