    Black and Yellow for all ocassions

    A set of flies I've tied up for my father's birthday. You won't often find him with anything other than a black and yellow fly on the end of his cast. However when questioned about this behaviour he always comes back with the same answer and a grin on his face "it's all I ever catch them on"...

    Swinford Blue Shrimps

    Getting into tying Irish shrimp flies recently, although I fish mainly Scottish rivers, I'm sure they'll work just fine. Fairly new to this style of fly so I'm still figuring out proportions and where the hackles should be in relation to tail and each other. Hook - Kamasan B175 Tag - Oval...

    Freestyle Scandi Pattern

    I found some old style singles in the bottom of my hook box and decided to see what happened as I went along. I don't tie much only singles/hooks as I mostly use tubes but I hope to give this a swim next spring in the cold waters of the Dee. A mix of various hackles and fox wings as follows...

    Yellow Pot Bellied Pigs

    Couple of PBP's tied today. Some tied with palmered body hackles and others with 3 hackles spaced equally, rear middle and front. They all have subtle differences as I like a choice when I am on the bank and different water I'm fishing. Sent from my ANE-LX1 using Tapatalk
