Old Mask Peter

Description

I bought the original of this pattern in a shop in Castlebar over twenty five years ago when I enquired about local dressings for Lough mask. It has a body of golden olive dubbing and is a much lighter fly than the original Green Peter dressing.

My Sedge collection includes some of the mTo Be Updatedost popular patterns fished in Ireland. Sedges are an important part of the trout's diet throughout the fishing season, with the peak hatches appearing on rivers and loughs from May through to September. The flies are most commonly fished "dry", either singly or in teams of two, positioned four to six feet apart. Whilst dry flies are normally fished static, sedge patterns such as the Murrough, Grey Flag, Shellin, Melvin and Small Brown Sedge are best retrieved with short pulls to represent the characteristic skittering motion of the natural sedge across the water surface. The Green Peter and Red-Assed Peter are classic all-rounders, fished equally well "wet" or "dry". They can be fished in any position on the cast from the start of the Mayfly period through to the end of the season. The flies in this collection have been tied in authentic colours from my Traditional Irish Dubbing range.
