The Munro's Killer is an excellent fly to have in your Salmon fly box. It comes in various colour variations and works well in mid to low water. It was invented by John Milne Morrison from Aberlour. He took a Thunder and Lightning body and added a long hair wing, which continues to prove a huge hit with Salmon anglers today.
This particular variation includes the addition of a Pig Bristle tail dyed yellow which gives the fly more movement in the water.
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 Munro's Killer with Feelers.
