Tying the RA Green Peter with Davie McPhail

The Green Peter is an old classic sedge pattern, and a deceiver which imitates the natural (Phryganea Varia). It works really well in Irish loughs & highland lochs for wild browns. This varient is called the RA Green Peter, (Red Arsed).

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. But now it's time to learn from Davie McPhail. Time to learn how to tie the Black Midge Hopper.
