Gorgeous George (JC)
The Gorgeous George was invented by Paul Cantillon from Cork and has been one of the most popular fly patterns of recent years. It is a difficult fly to tie involving alot of materials and is a bit bumble,a bit hopper.It is a great pattern for daphnia feeders and has been succesful for both brown trout,sea trout and salmon and even rainbows.It is a particular favourite on Lough Melvin but is fished everywhere. This is a beautifully tied example of the original dressing but there are now many variants. See Gorgeous George Sooty JC and Gorgeous Claret JC.
