Silver Stoat

  • £3.75

The silver stoat is the quintessential hairwing salmon fly. It  embodies everything about summer fishing with a floating line and long leader.

The original Stoat's Tail , or ‘the wee black flee’ as it is fondly known in Aberdeenshire, was created on the River Dee, by Park ghillie George Copper. The silver bodied version is arguably more popular and  really comes into its own when the water warms up and the fish are more apt to come up for a small fly. In May and June, this classic style of fly fishing is at its best as anglers fish on warm evenings looking for late running springers and the first of the grilse and sea trout.
