Tying the Kinermony Killer with Davie McPhail

Davie ties the Kinermony Killer, designed by Spey ghillie Jock Royan in 2006 then the inventor of the world famous Flamethrower pattern, Duncan Egan, tweaked the Kinermony Killer in his own Flamethrower style and after 2 years of highly successful trials, they decided it was time to share the pattern with a wider circle of Salmon anglers. All the colours of a traditional Salmon fly rolled into one and a guaranteed fish catcher!
