OK Iain here goes

Guess most of us over the years have fished with the following fly.



1. What is it called.
 
2. Where was it created.

3. why is it called what it is.

Dewhurst was a Butcher


Hence the blue wing, to represent the blue and white apron I believe, and the red tail to represent , well, all things butchery.
Ok, I admit it, I quite like this salmon fishing lark....

Well done Rob.

Hi Rob

Looks like it is over to you.

The Butcher was invented over 150 years ago. It was created in Tunbridge Wells, by two gentlemen one of whom was a butcher.

The Butcher was originally named Moon's Fly, after one of the two co-inventors, Moon and
Jewhurst.  However, the name was changed in 1838 to the occupation of Jewhurst (a butcher).


The colours of the Butcher are supposed to represent the hallmarks of his trade blood and the blue apron.
