The Carron Fly

Recommended Posts

Hi all

Here is an old standard from the Spey.

"The Carron Fly".

The special feature of this fly is the body hackle, wich is a black breast feather from an old herron. It gives this flowing delicate look.

(I know it is impossible to get in the States because it is prohibited by law). In Denmark it is legal to posses but it is not easy to come around.

That said I hope you like it.

Jens

Jens thank you for the tips last week; my wing is getting better and hopefully one day it can be half as nice as yours.
