The Akroyd belongs to the family of Dee Strip Winged flies. These are very old flies originating from the famous Scottish salmon river Aberdneshire Dee, commonly called the Dee. The Dee Strip Winged flies are very special with their characteristic turkey wing and their long heron hackles. We have had our skilled Swedish tyer Håkan Karsnäser behind the vice to demonstrate this beautiful and classic pattern. And remember classics are not only to be tied and put in a frame, this pattern calls for being used in the hunt for salmon.
