Trout & Salmon (UK) - - Half-Hogs -

Hook Size 10-12 Fulling Mill All Pur­pose Medium Thread Red Rib Fine red wire Body Flu­o­res­cent red seal fur First wing tuft Light roe deer hair Dub­bing Flu­o­res­cent red seal fur Sec­ond wing tuft Light roe deer hair Legs Two pairs of cock pheas­ant tail fi­bres Hackle Ginger hen, two turns This is a re­cent ad­di­tion to my H-H Hop­per range. A friend from the south showed me a sedge pat­tern of his that in­cluded the flu­o­res­cent red dub­bing and which he claimed to be his nu­mero uno dry-fly pat­tern on Mid­lands reser­voirs. We were on the Lake of Men­teith and we had one hel­luva time us­ing his red sedges on the rain­bow trout. Nat­u­rally, this vari­a­tion screamed out to be an ad­di­tion to my dry-fly box.
