    I see a hatching Midge - great stuff.

    I've seen a fly very similar to this used with great success on the Killarney lakes. A Black and Peacock with an orange tag.

    Used to fish the Black Joe many years ago and found it excellent as a pulling wet fly in the first half of the season, but like so many it drifted away and I don't use it any more.

    And no it isn't at all like a small Black Blob. The ostrich herl slicks down to about nothing when wet.

    A' the best.

    On a bright day, this fly will get you trout, no question about that. It is still widely used here in Ayrshire, the tying having been altered but little. An old friend of mine, Hugh Scally tied this fly with a globrite no.4 tail, and then the no 4 about a third down the body as well. Finished just as Dennis has shown.
    Yet another fly from Scotfly that I would reccommend to all to have in their fly box. A hatching buzzer, yes indeed.

    Well done, Scotlfy

    My wife didn't stop laughing for days after discovering that I had a book called "200 Popular Flies".

    The alternative dressing is just plain silk, but I'm sure Peacock herl would be fine.
    All done
