This pattern was originally shown to me by Dave Mee when he was the team manager during my days in the England Youth World Team. Dave has played a huge role in my angling career and without his incredible support it is unlikely that I would be doing the things I am today. So thank you Dave! This fly is great for Trout and Grayling, and is particularly effective when Euro Nymphing on the Welsh Dee, hence the name!
