    A couple of Crathies

    Strange going back to tying small doubles. Found these quite tricky even though the pattern is simple enough. Both on size 12 Ahrex doubles ( which consequently a very small 12 )

    I donk know what to call it, but here it is...

    Ever since Iain announced this months TOTM instructions ive been racking my little brain trying to come up with something along the lines of a salmon style fly but incorporating colours associated with the sea and fresh fish. I'm not entering it, but I do quite like the colour combo so thought...

    One of my favorite all time flies ..... This is my take on a Haslam with a few twists. The body is palmered with a natural badger hackle, the wing is mallard and I've left out the Macaw. This is for two reasons, 1 I don't like them and 2, I just can't make them look right.... This is tied on...

    Long tail Green Silk

    I don't know how I ended up with this but I guess its a long tailed Green Silk sorta thing. And then on top of that a mallard wing on a treble, which you don't see often....... All a bit random but hey ho...... ED #10

    'Green Silk' ..... Blame Jockiescott 😊

    Not knowing too many of the classics I hadn't realised that yesterday's 'mallard cascade' effort had some similarities to an old Irish Classic until Jockiescott mentioned it. I looked it up and absolutely love the look of the original, moreso than the more modern shrimp version so thought I'd...

    'Colours of Cascade and Mallard'

    I've had precious little time at the vice of late. I finished work today and thought " I'm tying a fly!".... One style of fly I'm pretty new to is feather wings so decided to go a bit freestyle with this one. I always thought a feather wing/Cascade combo would look good together so gave it a...

    Flaming PIG

    This is my take on a fiery brown flaming pig. Inspired by a fly posted some time ago by the legendary Jockiescott......👏 Tied on a veniard superslim bottle tube (12mm). It proved a bit tricky as there is a lot to squeeze onto such a short tube, especially with this type of fly being quite busy...

    Experimenting with Fiery Brown

    I've been wanting what I would call a true "fiery brown" for a long time and have never been able to get one. The standard offerings tend to range from pale ginger to mix almost red. To me, it should be brown with a definite hot orange tone. So i dyed up a few strung saddle feathers myself...

    A couple of small ones for summer

    Started what I intend to be a box of small singles for daytime Sea Trout and Grilse fishing. After tying doubles and trebles for what seems an age, going back to trout sized singles was the equivalent of learning Mandarin. These two are on size 12 wet fly trout doubles. A Butcher and a Teal...
