Alright gentlemen,

I can't make a decision, so I'm offering a choice. Here's two similar patterns I tied. Just drop me a pm which one you like better and I'll tie accordingly.

GK last month, you this month Steve, what part of "tie 10 of one pattern" don't you get?! :D
PS: the second one for me please :p

10 of the second one will do nicely Steve.

Peas in a pod Gary ;)

Thanks Peter. Nice to see you back :D

Sorry :p

"10 of the second one will do nicely Steve."

I really don't care tbh, I simply like the Piglet profile. It didn't escape my attention, that you're not overly fond of it :p
But I found out yesterday, that fulling mill are selling one pretty similar to the one I tied. That's a bit of a relief, knowing it ain't complete BS ;)

Cheers,

Steve

Jockiescott, your flies arrived today, each one a wee gem, and thanks for the wee selection of irish shrimps, will give them a swim when things warm up :D

Good to see you remembered an envelope this time, but even in these modern times with your every move captured on cctv and GCHQ monitoring all comms the old-fashioned Royal Mail still need your address! Pm me :p

Why not quit your job and tell the government you don't need retirement pay?
And in 20 years time sell your example as one out of only five tied for a fortune... :p

GK, your set arrived today and look the part, and thanks again for the couple of extras, very nice as well :D

To anyone who hasn't posted yet, can you try and get them off to me by the end of this week so I can get them back out over the weekend?

Cheers!

Gary

I'm almost there. 4 more to go. Got a bit sidetracked today playing with new materials. Hurch flyfishing have a 50% discount on future fly products, in case you need something. I bought the Predator tubes, coz there was no pic and it only cost 40 cent. Looks like they made a mistake. Checked it out and now the kit costs 9,50 :D

Sorry Guys,

I’m only posting mine on my way home from work this evening. That was a slog and a half! I can’t remember the last time I struggled as much to put together 10 flies… then just to top it off, a final quality control check has just shown I’ve missed a rib on one as well…. So If Gary could, would you please pick it out and send that one back to me :eek:

It was the simplest of patterns to, a 1 inch GBWG!!!

Canewizard, your flies arrived yesterday, but I was out at the opening of the mid Clyde then pub for rugby hence delay :D
Will get them sorted and sent out asap, prob mid week before I get them done.

Mine arrived today and a great set of flies.
Just in time to use them on the Dee next week. If one of them don't get a fish there's none there ;)
Thanks for organising Gary.

Got home tonight after a few days away to a great set of flies.

They all look great and some nice ideas I'll definitely be copying. Thanks to everyone and double thanks to Gary!
