    Default Marchog Series

    Perhaps some twenty years ago, a magazine now no longer in existence published an article on the Marchogs. I think there were six flies altogether. I remember sitting up in bed when I was ill, tying them on a bed tray. I then lent my fly-box to a guy who was fishing the Annan and he lost most of them. From memory there was a blue, yellow, red and black Marchog, but I can't recollect the other two. Does anyone have all or any of the patterns, please?

    Try Successful Sea Trout Angling by Graeme Harris & Moc Morgan, which gives dressings for 5 Marchogs + detailed instructions for making the mount, on pages 349-351.

    There is a whole page colour plate with the dressings between page 288 & 289.
