Quote from: deergravy on February 24, 2011, 10:37:51 PMVery true.Deer hair sedges and sedgehog-type patterns are, by some distance, the flies I use most often on northern lochs. I've never thought of them as sedge imitators at all, even when figure-of-eighted across the surface in a rather sedge-like fashion.Strange how trout will take a seemingly good imitation of a natural fly they usually ignore!

Particularly as they seem to often occur in those evenings when the wind falls away to a flat calm.I did say that in desperation he ate a few of them himself and said they tasted crap.I no way could this ever equate to a trouts sense of taste though surely.His remarks were tongue in cheek.Apologies for any confusion.wee bri.........
