The Black & Orange

by Jonathan

The Black & Orange.

This fly is a favourite for night fishing for seatrout.
Best used as a point fly with a smaller dropper, i.e. a mallard & claret.
If you are lucky enough to be at the river during the day when it is running off and there is still some colour in the water, you will find a gold head version is well worth a try.

Hook – L/S 6 / 8 / 10
Body – Black Wool ( Nylon )

Rib – Silver Mylar

Tail – Orange Cock Hackle Fibres

Wing – Black Bear or Dyed Black Squirrel

Happy Fishing from Dave C and the team.

Nice looking fly David, Glad to see a new video. Do you not tie on stainless steel for saltwater there? Hope you are well and keep these lessons coming.
