How to Tie a Hot Orange Leggy Hedgehog by Davie McPhail

Today, we are checking out Davie McPhail's take on the Sedgehog. The Hedgehog is a super versatile fly, as it can be tied as a Dry or Wet. The pattern that Davie is tying up is a Dry and as he explains in his video, is an incredibly popular fly for those seeking out Brown Trout. There's not much you would want to change about this fly besides the colours. So get this fly tied in various colour variations, in a few different sizes and get out fishing! 

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 the Hot Orange Leggy Hedgehog, with the guidance of Davie McPhail.

Additional materials: Additionally, Davie made use of Varnish, which he applied to the thread after completing the fly.
