Notes
A useful addition to any anglers fly box. Hailing from Ireland as the name suggests, this fly is equally at home taking trout, seatrout and salmon.

 

On the larger patterns, you can palmer a black cock or hen hackle down the body. You can also add a hackle of black hen at the head prior to adding the blue jay.
