Invicta was designed and tied by Contributing Fly Tyer John Wood. Take a look at his contributor page, The Flies of John Wood, to see many more of his flies.

John's Notes: This pattern is of my own design based on the classic wet fly designed in the late nineteenth century by British angler James Ogden. Personal success with the original wet fly influenced me to convert this pattern to the full dress salmon style.
