Use Originally used in larger sizes as a Scottish dapping fly for both brown trout and sea-trout, the Loch Ordie (or "Wee Loch Ordie" as it is sometimes known) can be used both as a dry fly or as a wet fly on a traditional loch-style multi-fly rig. Tends to be good as a bob-fly in this latter style when fishing a fairly heavy wave from a drifting boat.
