    Very pretty flies with very good black/yellow contrast that will work well in low underwater light levels. On that basis you'd better get them in the water sooner than later

    Thanks All for your comments - not been tying much recently - and not got much fishing booked - but these might get a chance on the Tay.

    I wish the Springers are enthusiastic as you Saint Andrews!

    All the best,

    Patrick

    Mcx, have you ever experimented with pink as used in these flies in coloured water ? In a deep peat stain the pink seems to really shine through and i probably do better using pink than any other colour. Just wondering if it would show up to the salmon in the same way it does to us.
