The Robin Twm's Small Sedge was first tied in late 1949 to 1967 in Wales and was darker in colour to most other Sedges. A wing made of partridge tail, with a slip of red-brown feather tied in first, one of the speckled feathers tied above. This small sedge is excellent when fished as the top or middle drop on a cast during a night fishing session. These flies also excel in windy day-time conditions. An excellent traditional fly to have a few of in your fly boxes.
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. Time to tie Robin Twm's Small Sedge, with the guidance of Davie McPhail.
