Take a look at Davie's Toe - Tying with Davie McPhail

This week, a little something different as Davie McPhail shows us a fly he tied as part of a fly-tying competition which won him the round back when he participated in competitive fly-tying between 1985 and early nineties. The fly is his own variation on a Goat's Toe and Butcher which he dubbed "Davie's Toe."

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. Without further ado, here's Davie McPhail tying his own pattern, "Davie's Toe."
