Hi Daniel CpDannyboy0345,

It will certainly take rainbow almost anytime throughout the year but it’s better known for catching wild brown trout in the hill lochs here in Ayrshire and especialy the one in the video Loch Doon…

All the best Davie

Hi Davie, great looking fly, could you use golden pheasent tippets instead of amhurst, nice instruction, reading the comments you get there must be hundreds of beginners and experienced fly tyers that look forward to your videos and you should feel proud to think that your videos are improving the art form thats fly tying. Wishing you a happy new year to you and your family. Regards Alan

Hi Davie

Great looking fly. I will have to ty some up for panfish and try it out on the crappies. It will work great on panfish

Have you thought about tying it with the bug bond over the sword fibers? I dont know if it would work. I think it would be cool looking.

Thanks for the Great Videos

Hi FrankB1191,

The peacock sword it prone to getting a bit ragged but the fish still keep taking it, the reason I put a tiny bit of super glue under the herl was just to give it a wee bit more life before it starts to go.. If I didn’t know how good this fly works and someone gave me the dressing I would probably have brought the rib up last using it to help hold and protect the peacock sword a bit better..

Happy New Year….

All the best Davie

Hi Davie,
As always, I like this fly. The peacock sword seems a bit exposed, but I suppose the Lady Amherst and hen might protect it. Has it held up well for you? Thanks for all of your videos, and enjoy a great New Year!
