    a black hackle but this is only my taste He also recommended fishing palmered flies in these conditions and a modern fly that is very effective is the Super Grizzly in sizes 16 18 and 20 Traditional When Stoddart fished the Tweed he almost certainly fished in the traditional way This involves a cast of some two to four flies some red s used as many as eight The cast is made slightly upstream and across and the cast is deemed spent almost as soon as the flies have passed the rod on their way downstream They are not left to fish themselves out in the modern way This involves a lot of casting hut it is very effective The only problem arises when fishing in higher water the river can often be too strong The only answer then is to fish across and down or try a dry fly when the river is really fining down John Younger s Tweed Flies Unlike Stoddart who was a gentleman rod Younger was a cobbler from St Boswells upstream from Kelso and not far from Melrose He created only a few more flies than Stoddart but in his patterns is seen the Tweed colour yellow far more obviously than before Yellow bodied flies were standard on Tweed no matter what the rest of the fly was made up with lt is a colour which stands out in the often dark waters of the river especially after a flood I have chosen his fly for the beginning of the season as my example John Younger s Tweed Fly Body yellow grey water rat fur from near the belly mixed with an equal amount of yellow worsted wool or mohair This can be substituted for by using Partridge SLF Finesse yellow mixed with a small amount of SLF Midge Grey Wing a woodcock wing feather rolled For variety Younger used starling and bunting and lark Mark Aitken s Flies Almost all Aitken s flies were tied with yellow bodies I have chosen five of his patterns Number 3 Mark Aitken Hackle Cinnamon hen one at most two turns only Wing From the back of a hen pheasant you can also use secondary feather from the wing Use In May Number 4 Mark Aitken Hackle Small black starling or dun feather Wing from the inside of woodcock wing Use A general fly for use all year Number 8 Mark Aitken Hackle Black or Coch y Bonddhu Wing inside feather blackbird substitute a starling grey inner wing feather Use April to June and again in September Number 9 Mark Aitken Body A change here use black tying silk Hackle Black Hen Wing Teal drake speckled feather Use April and May Number 11 Mark Aitken Hackle grizzle hen hackle strong blk white markings Wing inside woodcock wing feather clear markings Use Another general fly for use all year Canon Greenwell and his Glory Whether or not the Canon had seen Aitken s Number 8 or not in

  • of Tweed is very often that of good bitter beer with a constant tinge of peat in the otherwise clear water and today it is just as important to tie flies in a sparse even anorexic style to fool the wily trout of the river lt is also important to consider fishing the wet fly upstream even tough perhaps not with eight flies on the cast Just put the flies on the water at 45 degrees upstream watch intently for any halt or change in movement and set the hook with a tightening by lifting the rod tip Retrieve and recast as soon as the flies are level with you and do not forget to fish the margins first before wading in Slim Volume Later in the century in 1888 there appeared a slim volume entitled How to Catch Trout the authors of which have never been determined In it there is a wealth of information that is still valid today regarding wet fly fishing loch fishing and bait fishing but the interesting chapter appears towards the end of the boek This is the chapter on dry fly fishing lt shows an interesting line of thought in that the authors tend to disparage dry fly as cushie and that no great accuracy is required when we have so definite a target as the rise to be aimed at They go on to say that this appeals to the nature of the elderly angler who inclines to give up the more strenuous method for the easier if less scientific one The proliferation today of both books and fly patterns to match the hatch makes one wonder if the authors did not have something after all although they will probably be decried today as old fuddy duddies and their methods totally antiquated Me I m not so sure Once more there is a listing of some of the flies mentioned by the three doughty anglers witlk their tyings I have illustrated a mixture of wets and dries and they have been tied with traditional wool rather than artificial modern materials But before turning to the patterns I would reiterate a caution that is a valid now as it was over 100 years ago Fine and far off that old down stream axiom is sometimes correct but often misleading Fine and near were closer to the truth Remember Stewart s dictum that long casts are as useless as long prayers W C Stewart s patterns The Black Spider Body Brown silk James Baillie s method nowadays often darkened with cobbler s wax Hackle Starling neck feather Today starlings seem to have shrunk and I find the best feather to be at the shoulder lt is a good idea to tie the feather in half way along the body and then half palmer it to the head where you tie off Stewart said he had never been without one since shown the pattern by James Baillie The Red Spider Body YeIlow silk and see
