Sir Richard copper tube

£3.50

Product Information

A cracking addition for your spring tube box from the Helmsdale company. The Sir Richard is a very old classic Tweed pattern, and details of the original dressing can be seen in a number of reference books, ie.T E Pryce-Tannatt's How to Dress Salmon Flies; 200 Popular Flies by Tom Stewart and Guide to Salmon Flies by Buckland and Oglesby. The pattern was first tied around 1850, reputedly by Forrest's of Kelso for Captain R Waldie-Griffiths of Kelso, who caught a 39lb Salmon with the fly at Sprouston Dubb on Tweed on the 24th November 1885. The pattern must have been in general use on Tweed at that time, as one of the old record books for The Lees shows that a 56lb fish was caught on the fly in 1913. At some time around the turn of the century the Captain, for reasons unknown, received a Knighthood - hence the name Sir Richard.
