• Claret Bumble

This is the original Claret Bumble as designed and fished by the notable Kingsmill Moore. Our version has two small departure from the original - dyed Hot Orange tippet in the tail and a suntly dyed front hackle in place of the now ever-scarce Blue Jay feather. This is probably the most famous and versatile of all of the bumble patterns, having its origins on Lough Corrib and the Costello & Fermoyle fisheries in the west of Ireland. Whilst representing absolutely nothing, it seems that all of our Trout species, and indeed our Salmon, seem to think that it imitates plenty of what they consider to be good for them. This fly has a pedigree second to none in that it will catch fish of all species regardless of time of day or year. It is fished from February through to October in all water types and colours - the size being the only differential. The secret of the pattern is the dark Claret Seals Fur in the body, which appears Black to the human eye until viewed under strong artificial light, combined with a gold rib for brightness - what more need we say ?
