Notes
A pattern that anglers either love or hate. Many anglers have never caught a fish on this fly, originally devised as a variation of a Teal and Red. One possible reason is that many Peter Ross’s tied today contain Silver Mallard in the wing as opposed to Teal which, with good markings is difficult to come by.
