Melvin Daddy

Melvin Daddy

Weight: 0.010 Kgs
Code: DLHP07-1

I first tied this pattern under the instruction of Davy Wotton in Margate in the early 1980's.Then we tied it dry fly style with figure of eight wings sitting out at right angles from the body. This wet version is basically the same pattern with the hackle and wings tied sloping backwards.It came to fame with great success on Lough Melvin, hence the name. Fish it anywhere as a classic wet daddy pattern.( See also Dry Daddy).

The flies in this website are a mixture of old traditional patterns, variants and new patterns many of which were invented by Frankie McPhillips. The use of correct colour blends of traditional Irish Dubbing in the dressings gives them an authenticity and uniqueness which, distinguishes them from other fly brands. Their quality is superb and this is continually monitored and checked by Frankie to ensure the highest standards.
