Lady Caroline, Olive/Gray - Product Image
Click for larger image

Lady Caroline, Olive/Gray

The traditional summer steelhead flies were developed on the fabled rivers of the Pacific Northwest, such as the Umpqua, Deschutes, and the Rogue. Our traditional summer steelhead flies are tied on a black nickel, up-turned eye, salmon hook. Special orders can be tied on Gamakatsu, Daiichi, or Maruto hooks.

A very nice tie.

A great Steelhead Pattern for Summer and Fall.

Size: 6

The Lady Caroline | first mentioned in George Kelson's "The Salmon Fly", 1895 |

The Classic Lady Caroline Fly is arguably one of the most recognizable Spey patterns; however unlike traditional Speys, the Lady C is tied with a tail. Tied by (most likely) Geordie Shanks, who was head ghillie at the Gordon Castle (as mentioned in A. E. Knox's Autumns on the Spey). The fly was named after Caroline Elizabeth Gordon Lennox (1844-1934) who was daughter of the Duke of Richmond and Gordon at Gordon Castle.

    "the forms of written languages undergo constant evolution"

    Mallard Spey, Green Butt Skunk

    Tied with soft Mallard for movement. Tied on a 2051 Alec Jackson Black Spey Hook, Size 3
     
    "In years past, on rivers such as Oregon’s North Umpqua, it was not uncommon for seasoned anglers to swing slim, long-shanked Muddlers and nothing else.  Even now this remains a truly killer “confidence” fly that newer generations of steelheaders would do well to get acquainted with and knot onto their leader." - Dave McNeese
     
    You can fish this fly wet or near the surface - waking in and out of the surface film, or on top. The head is black spun deer belly hair, but not too much that it can't be fished wet. Just the right about to do both surface or sub surface.
