Silver Doctor

 

An excellent sea trout fly, the Silver Doctor, this slim down version has scored well on the Welsh Rivers.

It seems to work best on a sinking line at night, and has been the downfall of known Big Fish resting in deep pools at times of low water.

I also use it regularly on stillwaters and find the Rainbow trout quite attracted to it, I have use it on a sinking line

and on a floater on the point as part of a team, a very good attracter on it’s day.
