    Jocelyn - as usual your 'step by steps' are very very good.


    Do you have the 'Ruelland Special' by any chance? I've heard it is a deadly pattern.

    That's very kind of you.

    It'll give me time to dig out some of the fly's history.

    I think John(?) Ruelland ran a famous salmon lodge in the '70s.
    I will check; and find some accounts of famous catches.

    As I said it is a Quebec pattern.

    Devised by Leo Ruelland then proprietor of the 'Horse Island' camp on the Grand Cascapedia.

    He took four fish over 40 lb on this fly on 'his' water. Last count was in 1992 so perhaps he had more; as the next owners - Herb & Delores Roth continued to invite him to fish.

    A friend of a friend took one of 31 lb from Little Jonathan Pool on Middle Camp's water; loosing a 40 - 50 pounder hooked in Morency Pool.
    All on a #6 Ruelland Special.


    It is said that Leo wished he'd never devised the pattern, so deadly had it become.
    Perhaps a reason it's not widely available.

    I've certainly never seen one; and it's hard to imagine from the dressing list alone.
