Created by an angler named Stan Headley, the Sedgehog fly is a brilliant fly that can be fished anywhere across the UK and Ireland. The Sedgehog is a large, buoyant fly that creates huge amounts of disruption when retrieved. This wave of disruption will attract that attention of any lingering Trout to investigate as it submerges and pops back up. This pop up action is what catches you Fish. The Sedgehog is a favorite on a windy day.
Additionally, Davie made use of Varnish, which he applied to the thread after completing the fly.
Davie’s preferred type of whip finish tool can be found HERE!
