Great looking set Gary, if you post to the usual address I'll get them, not moving house for at least another week now. If everyone else can hold off though until I can confirm a move date as don't want to lose anybody's flies in the post.

Singles would be great for me given the C&R regs on most rivers I fish. They look good! Thanks Brian

Singles or doubles will do me GK. Find I'm tying more on singles these days anyway. Think I'm prefering the hook hold, even when barbless and they come out of trees/snags a bit easier :p

Nice flies so far... Unfortunately I will be a bit late, it seems. My hook order got cancelled...
Guess I'll tie this one for you, hoping you use it and it catches a fish or two.

Nothing too 'swanky' from me this month. :eek: Just a wee simple Silver Doctor Hairwing.



Might attract a sea trout or two if the salmon aren't playing ball. :)

5 done and 5 still to do.

Am I right that they are due the week of 6th November and not next week?

Very nice Dean, sure I read an article about this in T&S a while back, seems to catch its fair share of fish
Thanks gary. You may have your magazine's muddled as this was from fly-fishing and flytying April 2016 edition.

Cracker JS, and adds to the variety of this month’s swap, lot of different styles already.

Re dates for posting, hang off for now as house move imminent but date still tbc.

Dean, you’re spot on re source of article, my bad!

Last but not least, your flies arrived today Gary, lovely set ?

Claret & Jay

I tried one of these for this months tie of the month and so have done up the 10 in size 6 singles. The varnish on most is drying at the moment. I will look at them in the morning and decide if one or two might need remanufacture of the wing or hackle.

Had a bit if a hiccup with my house move, delayed for another week or so, so if anyone wants to post their flies to the usual address then carry on, if anything changes will advise.

Will have a postal forwarding service set up for when I do eventually move so should all be ok anyway, but paranoid about flies going missing hence why I’d held off until now.

If anyone needs a note of my address then pm me.

Gary

Finally got my 10 finished. Hopefully get them posted tomorrow or Tuesday.

Will I post to your usual address Gary?

If not, could you pass me on your new one?
