    Another rainbow

    Not another bright feather wing. I can only ties these style of flies when I'm in the mood and have time, plenty of time. This one was close to getting stripped as I left too much space at the head area and I hate seeing leftover shank at the front of hooks, instead I gave it a big woolly head...

    Blue Baron'ish

    Not meant to be traditional or fished, more an arty farty pish take to sit on a friend's tying desk. We slag him off as the Barron of Ballymena and I took him for a closet ranger fan so though this flee might suit him, loosely based on the traditional pattern the blue barron. It's the 3rd in...

    As my silver doctor was judged to have hackles too short for the common pollock, I've taken a radical change in direction and going to try a black dog at them. Hopefully the longer hackles will entice them out from under the kelp.
