The Dunkeld Wet Fly is one of the top all-rounder flies when it comes to targeting Brown Trout and Rainbow Trout. Davie McPhail's variant of this classic fly, has a Cloaked style to it, similar to that of a small Palmer pattern. The Classic pattern for Salmon is adapted for Trout as an attractor pattern that swims just below the surface of the water and this is where it's success sprouts from.
