Bloody Legolas is tied by contributing fly tyer, Swedish fly fisherman and tyer, Tobbe Hedin. This fly was designed for, and has proven itself for Sea Trout, but would be equally successful for Salmon and Steelhead here as it has for him on his native Ljungan - a river that runs through the middle of Sweden. This is what he had to say about the Bloody Legolas.

"This Pattern works very well in Dark Water and as an Evening Fly. "
