Hugh Falkus' Medicine

The late Hugh Falkus’ simple Medicine is a top producing fly for seatrout (sea run brown). It was created for river fishing, but in my opinion it is equally effective in the salt. The slim silver body, kingfisher blue hackle and the dark mallard wing combines to make a convincing imitation of a small baitfish. You can tie this fly in a hair wing version using brown or sivertipped squirrel tail or bucktail for the wing. I'm sure the old master would approve on the hair wing version, since he teased out the mallard wing quill, so it looked like a hairy mess before fishing the fly.

Thanks for watching :0)

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

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.
