  • Vintage fly dressing: Moonlight

    << The Moonlight caused me confusion for quite a while - I think that it is an error on the part of Mr Pryce-Tannatt, it is simply the Moonshine with a different tail and tag. I think all of the modern reference books have taken P-Ts interpretation "Moonlight" rather the more historically correct "Moonshine". This is an entirely separate fly to the "Moonlight on Mrs Higginbotham" which was tied by J.D. Greenway (and documented in his book; “Fish, Fowls & Foreign Lands”) for the river Em in Sweden and is not a Dee fly.>>

      Stunning. Interesting history too on the origin of the name.

      Is that kingfisher?
      Pursue happiness with diligence.
