Welcome to the show for April 2010. Our fly this month is from New Zealand. Named for the Duchess of Windsor, the Mrs Simpson is a "Killer" style of fly. The Killer is a pattern tied using cape or breast feathers tied parallel to the hook shank and veiling the body of the fly. The Mrs. Simpson has a reputation as a fly that fools difficult trout, but it's a good choice for bass and panfish, too! If you're ready to show the fish something different, this is a great place to start. The Mrs Simpson is a pattern illustrative of a style of tying that's seldom used in North America. If you fish this fly, you'll wonder why you haven't seen it before. It really is a killer!
