The Fox Fly was tied by Irish fly fishing instructor, guide and Salmonfly.Net contributing fly tyer, Stevie Munn. Although it was tied for Atlantic Salmon, it is one of those flies that could easily cross over as a Steelhead fly.
Stevie's Notes: "This Bobby Bryans pattern has been taking both dollaghan and salmon on the Lough Neagh system for years. A great pattern."
