Rollover Mayfly Yellow

This is one of a series of patterns designed by one of Ireland's most famous fly dressers Patsy Deery of Cootehill. Patsy is the author of "Irish Mayflies-A fly-fishers guide."

Patsy designed the style of fly to imitate the newly hatched mayfly duns as they are blown across the surface of the water. This is a deadly pattern when fished across the wave,twitched and bobbed. It is a great favourite on Loughs Mask and Carra but will work literally anywhere mayfly are hatching.There are two other versions Roll-Over Grey and Roll-Over Olive.

CDC Mosley Mayfly

This is a variation of the original pattern which I designed  with the addition of pink CDC Feathers. This  helps both the floatation and the mobility of the fly.

I think that the mobility of  CDC feathers is an attraction particularly in flies that are being fished static.It has proved very popular since its invention a few seasons back.

French Partridge Mayfly Wet

Mask Mayfly Yellow

I designed this pattern like the Mask mayfly Olive,firstly with just a wing of natural deer hair.
I later added an underwing of natural CDC so that when you false cast a few times the fly, fished on the top dropper, will sit like a dry fly in the surface film if fish are feeding on top. A great pattern for the top dropper it is fished, and has proved succssful all over Ireland.

Lough Arrow French Partridge

This is a beautiful wet mayfly dressing that I first tied for Lough Arrow in the early 1980's..I then supplied it to Christy Wynne's shop in Boyle Co. Roscommon.It is a slight variant on the pattern in E.J. Malone's book Irish Trout And Salmon Flies.It is similar to many early Lough Erne patterns which are heavily dressed and has a beautiful combination of movement and colour in the front partridge hackles.It remains one of the most beautiful and successful wet mayfly patterns fished today.

Lansdale French Partridge

This pattern is a great point fly in the mayfly.The body is dark brown and is tied with Traditional Irish Dubbing no.48 DarkSedge Brown. I still have an original pattern given to me by Roy Graham of Letter kesh. From its colour and pushed back partridge hackle it is almost certainly taken for the ascending mayfly nymph.It can be deadly on it's day.
