  Butcher Spider 11 KILL DEVIL 15 MARCH DONEGAL BLUE
 
 'THE HEBRIDEAN CAST'
 
Make two fly leaders with these flies. Something bushy on the bob will bring fish up, if they refuse the bob they may well take the point fly. Working the flies with a figure of eight retrieve and using the rod to animate the flies is often the best way of tempting all gamefish rather than just stripping back. Expect anything from a 4oz brown trout to a 10lb salmon to take these tyings:
 
Bob Flies: Kill Devil, Kate Maclaren, Haul y Gwynt, Blue Zulu.
Point Flies: Murrays Bluebottle, Wee Peter, Donegal Blue, Silver March Brown
