tied by Alex_F
Fly Type: Wet,
Target Species: Trout,
Recommended Region: General Europe,
Hook: Captain Hamilton wet or similar, #6-12.
Tail: Golden Pheasant crest.
Body: Flat gold tinsel.
Rib: Fine gold wire.
Hackle: Orange cock or hen.
Wing: Bronze Mallard flank paired or rolled.
Cheeks: (optional) Jungle Cock.
Tying Instructions: The original Dunkeld was a built wing Salmon pattern. Like a number of Salmon flies it had a scaled down Trout and Sea Trout counterpart. The standard Trout Dunkeld has a orange palmered body hackle, this version dispenses with that in order to slim down the profile.
Presentation Tips: Used as a heavy 'anchor' fly on a three fly cast. Very handy in a daphnia (water flea) bloom where orange flies get results. Also useful as a small fry pattern.
