Developed over a long time this fly has proven itself time and time again.

The technique is simple, on fast flows just let it ride, on slower water raise your tip and let it dive back down. Depending on the depth of the water you can let it hit the river bed then bring it back to just below the film then let it dive again.

As far as your cast goes, you’ll need to be aware of the weighted hook it is slightly different than a normal fly but you’ll get use to it pretty quickly.

    I just wanted to say I think it is a great idea to film from the tiers point of view. It couldn’t have been easy to film like that but I think it is an excellent idea. all really nice videos, thank you, Steve from Oban.

      Thank you Steve for taking the time to comment, The first couple weren’t easy and I knocked the camera more than a few times! I’ve since made a rest and a new lens for the camera and it seems to be a little easier.
      I’ve since got hold of a go pro type camera to shoot the flies at work… just need some time to try it out! All the best, Rae
