    Default Dame Juliana

    Nondescript often equates versatile and effective. This has to be a good thing, no?

    I do wonder what the good dame would make of that fly Hans. Her selection, I am informed, didn't have any wound hackles. As for me that looks perfect for the brown trout lochs. As I've just resolved to fish them rather than "bathe" in them next time out I may just tie some up. Did you make your dubbing brush?
    Cheers,

    Hans,

    Yes...No....well actually, I don't know.....but based on my gut feel alone it looks like it might catch fish pretty well! It just plain looks fishy to me.

    I think Dame Juliana would approve.

    Regards,

    Gandolf
