I agree with Gary . A cracking set of flies which will do a job anywhere and everywhere. If I was pushed to choose the pick of the bunch then Lamson’s would be it.
Apart from the use of colour and the proportions ,how does he get the heads so neat and tidy ? Should be banned for not following the brief.

Practice billy :)

Well well well. The effects of brexit are worse than I ever thought. BUT canewizards flies arrived today!!!!

Sooo, canewizard I will get a set out to you so everyone will have their Feb sets. Hopefully you'll receive them before 2019.

Then those wonderful people in the March swap will get an extra back with those. The rest of you hopefully join in to other swaps as the year goes through and they will be added in to those.

Phew ? Glad they made it. Never underestimate a Ninja! Even in the toughest of conditions, they'll prevail.
Now you also know, when to tie one on...

Gutted boys had my envelope yesterday only to have it delivered in a plastic bag with royal mails apologies the envelope had clearly been opened and the flies removed. Tried to phone there customer service team only to reach a recorded message (due to the current weather we can not take your call). Will have to try again once the weather gets better I suppose. I think the word got out that Lamson was doing the fly swap. Keep a look out for a fly fishing postman on your rivers guys. And throw him in for me. Nod

I can't believe they did that, especially with it being a Signed for packet. Hopefully you can claim some pennies for new hooks at the very least.

Arrived this morning - you guys are right this is as good a set of flies as I have seen. Some really good tyings. The problem is going to be keeping track of whose fly does the business especially if you then go and lose it next cast so cant check against the photos.
What material is Lamson's bucktail "subsitute" and where can you get it? I love the dual colour - yellow and black could be a winner as well.
Many thanks to all tyers and Piker for organising. hope to rejoin nxt month when the pink phase is past!

My set arrived today. I'm blown away, this is by far the best swap I've been in and I'd fish all those flies with confidence.
Who tied the GBWG minitube? Dean? What a cracker. Love it.

Thanks Colin for organising ?

Thanks to Hemmy

Hoping to get these green ersed ghillie variants/deviants in the post tomorrow :nod::nod::nod:

Found at last. I've trawled through the fly swap to find this fly I caught with last week. Also lost a fish on it.
Cheers Hemmy
Colin.
