The fly was named after Mrs Simpson, as legend has it, because this fly worked so well on catching and luring Trout, and the way Mrs Simpson almost lured King Edward VIII into marriage, it was only fitting that the fly was named after the Duchess Of Windsor. The Mrs Simpson fly is a great streamer for catching Trout, Barbel and Bass, and is a very similar pattern to the legendary Walkers Killer.
