Who was Watson?
I've spent the past few days drafting words about fly patterns for Nomads. One such pattern is the Watson's Fancy - an absolute nailer, though I've fished it less often, perhaps, than I should have done over the past few years. When I was researching the history of the pattern of course I wondered about the name. All I've come up with so far is that Watson of Watson's Fancy was one Donald Watson of Inverness. If anybody knows any further details, please let me know.
