Back in the early 90s I got into dressing and fishing this pattern having worked on the theory that Purple might give me an advantage .
Stan Headley kindly mentioned them in an article in T&S and then in his book of Scottish dressings .
Since those days when fishing hooks rather than tubes and waddies this has been my go to fly ,its caught fish from the Wye up to the Brora and many rivers in between.
It has evolved a bit from the original ,mainly the body is no longer fragile pearly tinsel but now glister type dubbing with a rib ,Bucktail has been replaced in the smaller sizes with finer hair and the silk is now red instead of black ( i find black a bu##er to see what I am doing )
As i am between jobs at the moment and need to pay the 72 to the EA so i can fish the Wye and Severn I will be selling a few
All on size 8 doubles (I have stock) ,4 in number at 10 including postage .
Please no paypal , I dont do it ,cheques or postal orders a PM will get you on the list .
Sorry no photos but heres a link to http://www.salmonfishingforum.com/forums/showthread.php?p=85141#post85141

I am not a Salmon fisherman but I am a bit of a fly freak fly collector among other things. I too am in-between but with a bloody interview lined up next week! Just as the trout season commences. However can you PM me your addy and I'll put a kite in the post and at the same time wish you, kind Sir, the best of luck in your persuits for both Salmon and employment.
