Kev,
Well done sir. Nice and simple and most importantly looks very fishy :)

One wee tip.......wear a white shirt next time so I can see what's going on :D

Keep up the good work.

Might that ( white shirt) not make things worse if it was washed out ( and no I don't mean washed out in the wash)

It means that if lighting and exposure isn't just right extremes like Blacks and whites don't show up properly .Blacks are dense and whites are "washed out" meaning they have no detail .Neutral colours show up better .

That's right Davie McPhail does tend to wear that blue shirt .
I have also seen vids where the tyer has placed a piece of card in front of him behind the vice but that seems to me to be a bit of a fiddle and probably it would get in the way of the tyer .

Great SBS.

I tried to pm you about the Vice adapter you use

What kind is it as I like the look of them and want to buy one myself.

Where do you get them?

tweedbunnet sorry been up to my eyes in it lately.as stuart says its the hmh adapter,i had a hard time finding one,everyone was sold out and were struggling to get more supplies,i got mines finaly from sportfish.but had to wait a while.i also use the eumer needle pin,its a tappered needle and costs only a few quid.between the 2 it covers every tubes i tie on.strood yes the chevron capes arwe worth every penny,a while ago i would have never paid £32 for a cape,but now i wouldnt go back to anything else,it makes life so much easier,they tie well and the stems keep bulk down.ill easy take a few hackles off the cape and give u them to try out.sommers tackle has a wide range of them in now,but i do tend to buy direct from christina at chevron.ull save a few quid.and she is very helpfull and if theres something/colour u need she will sort u out nae probs.let me know if u wana try the hackles out and i can sort something out for u.lol aye my flees on the river bank,but its never me thats got them,always other people lol.my flee boxes are always bare.the thing is strood i dont mind,love to see people using and enjoying them.cheers.
