Willie 'The Ghillie' Laird

Here's the man responsible for my involvement in the salmon fishing world. For those who remember him he was an absolute 'topper' of a man and still greatly missed by many. This 'lucky charm' rod label ensures contact with our 'salmon god' as I am convinced Willie will be one of his closest pals. If I told you how this picture came to be a lucky charm on my Monteith Spey rods you wouldn't believe me !

This is one of the most deadly salmon fly patterns of them all. Personally I found the gold bodied versions absolutely brilliant in the Spring.
