Ice Maiden Tube Fly
A pattern created for the cold and harsh conditions to be experienced on the River Tweed. This is a very bright pattern, carrying a body created form Pearl Mylar tubing. Complimented by the white bucktail in the wing which also contains Chartreuse and light Blue. It is a pattern from recent times and will be around for some time yet.
Fishing The Ice Maiden Tube Fly
Normally fishing the Ice Maiden (or any salmon fly) is casting it downstream and across. You mend the line to let the fly sink and then allow it to swing across the current towards the bank. Some salmon anglers gently move the rod tip inducing even more movement into the fly.
By mending the line upstream as the Ice Maiden moves to decrease its speed and even make it sink a bit or alternatively mend downstream to speed it up and lift it a bit in the water column. Many salmon anglers find that the fish will strike as the speed increases and the drag in the rod is at its highest. Finally you can always skate the Ice Maiden Tube Fly temptingly across a pool!
