    lovely looking fly MacD

    got me thinking of low water, early mornings and grilse with that colour scheme.

    Ah those summer days seem so far away

    you said it FP. I was feeling a bit fished out 3 weeks ago, now Im dreaming of getting back at them. Flytying and hanging around here for the next few months will have to suffice

    true very true...must get the vice out again, put it away in September for a bit of a break. Was feeling fished out as well and no real run of fresh fish to spur me on for the last few weeks this year.

    Will put up a few flies as well so i can get pointers of where im going wrong etc
