The Glenfarclas fly was invented in Scotland by James Chalmers as an entry to a competition run by the Glenfarclas Whiskey Company. The rules of the competition dictated that the fly be tied using the company colours, which turned out to be for the best as the salmon on Speyside seemed to take to it very well. Its success on fast peaty waters in Scotland has placed it firmly in the sights of salmon fishermen in Ireland.
