THE GREEN HIGHLANDER FLY PATTERN
This pattern refuses to die because it still bring great results. The modern version of the famous fully dressed pattern uses hair-wing. It mixes colors of bucktail to form the wing rather than the feathers of the endangered exotic birds of the original. This method is used to update and improve many of the old traditional patterns. The original was designed during the latter part of the 19th century by Mr Grant of Wester, Elchies. The older fly called the highlander is considered the forerunner of the Green Highlander. It is notable as it is one of the few green classic salmon flies. For some reason, apart from the Green Highlander, green flies never became popular in Great Britain in times past unlike today.

Have to say a size 12 Green Highlander for salmon as I was lucky enough to be in the right place in Russia to catch a 46.5lb, Adrian Latimer, France
I fish for trout and salmon in Finnmark county the most northern of our counties in Norway, I live in Alta so occasionally I fish in the Alten river for salmons that reach sizes up to 30 kg. Mostly we use the classic such as the Green Highlander, March Brown, Phatakorva (named up after a fishing place a kilometer from where i live). Best regards Stian Simensen, Norway
