About the Welshman's Button Trout Flies Fly

The Welshman's Button is also known as the Welshman's Button Winged Caperer, or the Caperer for short. Whatever the the name it is referred to by fishermen, it is a very successful sedge pattern.

Although originally intended for the gentle chalk streams of Southern England, it has also proved to be equally successful in the rough and tumble fast flowing rivers as well as in still waters.

Sedges are found on most waters, so fly boxes should have a place for this proven fly.
