Copper Palmer

 

Again a very nice palmered pattern to always have in your

fly box, the Copper Palmer is one of my “must have” palmered flies.

I have caught many a fish using this as part of a team usually

on the centre dropper but sometimes the top while boat fishing

loch style, a light breeze and this fly can be deadly when fished back

using a figure of eight retrieve, tight lines!
