Would than have been Paul Young of TV angling fame?

I still have a laugh when remember about the clip of him trying to get hold of the seatrout that beached itself on the banks of a loch in Harris.

OK a few bits of info that may help.

He started a business in the USA with a brand name that featured a type of water we fish in as part of the company name.

The company closed down a few years ago due to foreign competition taking most of his potential customers.

I use one of his lighter tubes (4 1/2 lbs) for backpacking into the higher hill lochs with a tent.

His name is similar to a wet fly some folk love to hate.

It has a hook Paul it's the materials that are a conservationists nightmare dream. It was described in T&S a while back. In fact I may have to change the question a bit cos I can't find the copy of T&S which has the tying details.

So who devised the fly?

Dick Walker, it included things like snow lepoard :shock and other equally unlikely items which could never be found.... though some smartarse probably did have a go. :z4 :z4

Ok an easier one what gave the coloration to the wool origionally used in the Tups indespensable
