A variation of the Testwood Nymph that I'm hoping to use at Testwood and Woodmill if I get there this year:confused:

Another take on the American Express fly.
Have attached a fluro pink 3.5mm tungsten bead on a long shank hook.

This is used on the top dropper on about 6" of line.Then on the point is a 1" -2" plastic tube or ally trailing about 24" behind.

The dropper sinks very quickly with the point tube fluttering above the ribbon weed.
Surprisingly the dropper takes a lot of fish as they hide in the weed.

Just dropped in on your excellent confection, very tidy.
Combines Alexandra, Stoat, Butcher and some classic Fanny Craddock all in one fly on a quality salt-proof hook.
I am sure this version would work in many sizes for all Salmonids and Trout, as well as Thymallus and D. labrax etc...
So as soon as I have cleared this valley of all grey squirrels and residual mink etc., down will I sit and make some wobbly copies.
Thank you

It was closed up Friday. I can't see them rushing back to work when they're on furlough. Especially for the despised anglers.
Tried to ring again today still no answer.
With nice weather and a good tide it would of been nearly 12 months to the date that me and my bro in law fished the pool and took a fresh 5 pounder I think will have to check ;)
