Here we will be tying the Grizzly King pattern by Professor James Wilson, brother of John Wilson [creator of the Professor fly]. The fly was first published in the magazine Rod and Gun, 1840, and the author describes his fly as so: "The Grizzly King is a hackle par excellence. They call him Coomberland in the northern parts of merry England. His wings are broad and burly, formed of any undyed feather, bearing narrow natural bars of black and white, and he bristles with many stripes from head to heel, his dark green body being wound about with gray or mottled hackle, and terminated by a fiery tail, turned up in what naturalists call an ensiform manner - that is, somewhat after the fashion of a sword." "What seems his head, the likeness of a kingly crown has on." To be honest I haven't fished it much here in Iceland since I use other wet flies more. However this is an all time classic pattern and I made the video for a guy who asked for it. I hope him and you guys enjoy watching it.
