Mosca Ahogada

Drowned Fly. Traditional fly from Leon, Spain using Gallo de Leon. This is an attempt to try and tie a traditional Spanish fly pattern from Leon using the famous Gallo de Leon. Most fly tiers know this feather as Coq de Leon the French translation of Gallo de Leon. These feathers are from Spain.
If you are interested in the history of the region you can research the El Manuscrito de Astorga from 1624.

Here is a video in Spanish about it.
Here is Spanish website explaining a bit about the tying of the flies.
Here is a link to Tomas Gil's YouTube channel and a proper tying :)!

Have fun!

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.
