Tying the Fiery Brown Dabbler, a variation by Davie McPhail

Originating in Ireland, the Dabbler is a classic lough pattern created for fishing high in the water and excels in catching rainbow trout and when tied in more enticing colours can also perform great for catching browns.
Similar patterns to the Fiery Brown Dabbler include the brighter and more colourful Clan Chief Bumble or more similarly the Straggler in Orange UV
All of the materials needed to tie this fly are available from Glasgow Angling Centre as listed below, but as always if you need any help finding materials or substitutes then we'll be happy to help. Now without further adieu, here's Davie McPhail with the Fiery Brown Dabbler.
