Peachy Palmer
Dressing

.

Having pretty much bought into the myth that Orkney trout won't look at anything other than peach, this one was designed for our Orkney trip in 2012. The peach-based flies worked just fine, but no better than standard drab traditional patterns. I guess as always, it's a case of picking your moments as far as colours go. My best resuts for the peach-based stuff seemed to come in good to bright light. Still, a useful fly, which has caught well back on the mainland, too.
