The Thunder & Lightning is one of all time great classic salmon fly patterns, created approximately 150 years ago. The characteristic brown fox wing seems to make it popular in rivers with a peaty tinge and hence its endearing popularity in many Scottish Salmon rivers.
Tied on a black Nickel Loop Double hook. Chemically sharpened and super strong these are widely acknowledged as one of the benchmark, premium quality, big fish salmon hooks.
In order to achieve a high level of excellence in fly dressing, it’s not enough to carefully “dress” hooks in rainbow materials. It requires patience, persistence, and entomological and ichthyologic knowledge. It is very important to focus on fly dressing techniques with which it is possible to catch fish under different conditions with an elegant and easily dressed fly.
Also, we offer a personalised tying service, and no job or request is too small. All CTF flies are approved by Tay river salmon.
