A true workhorse for trout and grayling. Imitates nothing, looks like everything. Pedigree colors and palmer hackle from the Black Zulu, an emerging profile similar to the Klinkhamer. Works completely dry, in the surface film and wet. I like them best tied on Partridge’s Extreme Klinkhamer hook with its characteristic sharp bend. Tried and tested for two years, passed around to friends who really liked it. Aptly named ”The Logcabineer

  1. Love the fly , i made a similar one some 30 yrs ago -size 8 longshank hook thick dubbed black sealsfur with a silver rib mostly to contain it and most importantly a deerhair head (trimmed) to keep it almost afloat (must be able to see the wake) Increadably deadly for rising trout at night to the extent i rarely used any other fly! A big hook and a big fly but the little trout loved it to. PS great blog
