Craigie´s Killer Variant

The original Craigie´s Killer was designed by Craig McDonald and utilises a full jig body to get down really deep in the river. In this video we have teamed ud with the skilled flyfisher and flytyer Neil Darling who took inspiration from the original and has a few added nymph triggers with a little less weight. It has taken grayling, brown trout and even a coastal Danish sea trout when Neil visited Denmark and we recorded this video. A pattern that should be in every fly box when the arget is trout and graylings!

Long story short

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
