    That's beautiful Gary, if not a little blasphemous for a Sunday!

    Cracking photo too!
    One of the best skills that an angler can ever develop is knowing the difference between passing the time and wasting it!

    Very nice, though I'm not sure what I like more, the fly or its name

    Thanks for the comments lads.

    I had not noticed the religious connection Richard. I'm sure that I will not be going to a higher place anyway

    Holy Jeezus that is a really tidy hellishly fantastic dressing


    Did you see that wot I did there then?
    It's all very well using WW2 analogies when referring to Brexit - 'spirit of the blitz' and all that. Imagine the curious atmosphere though if you were sitting in your air raid shelter looking around and realising that half of the people around you had voted to get bombed

    Great job on a lovely Charlie DeFeo pattern. While I have dressed it before, I don’t ever recall hooking a salmon on one but that would the result of my fly fishing skills or the fact I didn’t fish it enough.

    Cheers!

    I would really like to understand a bit more about these North Amercian patterns. Can you recommend something to refer to?

    I highly recommend this book. It has chapters based on where the flies originate from (U.K., Canada, U.S.A., Iceland, France, Spain, Scandinavia......). The chapters on North American patterns are accurate, informative with loads of patterns and their histories provided.

    Really quite nice...devilishly tricky I am sure ...and, yes highly commended …. but there is just a hint of red thread untrimmed at the butt...so , well, ah, disappointing….
