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.
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.
