This is an interesting way to look at these flies. I have only caught one salmon on a Jock Scott but I freely admit to not tying these by the dozen or having given the pattern a fair go at the fish. I have fished with the traditional Silver Doctor much more (easier to tie) and have had good results while they were on my lines. I would imagine that the Scott would do better for me if I were to give it a fair shake.

Good post topic,

Wow, where did this section come from. That Jock Scott is gorgeous! I think I'm going to Attempt to tie one this weekend. I have to substitute some materials like Crow, bustard, and king fisher but I love the looks of that pattern.

Ahhhhh, great Atlantic flies should just be held in hand and admired (just kidding). The idea that it will (with luck) get chewed to bits .....
