The Editor

  • £3.75

Former Trout & Salmon Editor, Sandy Leventon first brought his eponymous creation to his readers’ attention back in 1997 for fishing on the River Spey. Since then, the Editor has established itself as a highly  effective and popular fly- especially on the River Dee

 It’s popular on the River Dee from late spring onwards and there are a few sea trout anglers that use it with great success on the Dee dressed on small doubles and larger singles. 

 The body of the Editor is radically different from the earlier hairwings and for that reason alone it is an important addition to the style. The body is a bit fiddly to tie, but it produces a unique finish that gleams like no other when wet.
