• Golden Octopus Bumble

What started as the Melvin Gosling, a Stan Headley originated pattern has now become an almost generic name for bumbles with fluorescent tails and over-large head hackles. This Golden version is fished heavily during the Mayfly hatches on the great lakes in the west of Ireland in addition to serving as a useful attractor for stocked trout. The fly is exceedingly good when fish are feeding predominantly on Daphnia, when the fly should be fished on a sink tip or type 2 sinker.
