    Default Rogie (v)

    Some cracking flies on offer already, sure to be copying more than one, but here’s mine for this month, a take on a good spring fly the Rogie.

    Default Spring Flamethrower

    Haven't entered the comp in a long time but thought I would throw my hat into the ring!

    Here's a pattern that I have been tying for a while and its done well here and in early season Russia, a variation on the tried and trusted 'Black and Yellow' theme, tied Flamethrower style. Its on a Loop double size 8, a super strong hook with good weight to get it down in cold spring water.

    Tying has a long way to go but if I don't enter I don't learn.

    Your tying is fantastic - God help us if this is you still learning- you tie a stunning and tidy fly. I doubt the rest of us could tie it any better - I know I couldn't!

    Thanks for the compliment particularly as I have a feeling I may have seen the original version of this tying on one of your videos.

    Seeing as there’s a ‘Posh Tosh’ I’m calling this a ‘Funky Monkey’. Unlikely there will be any improvement on the original but I like the colours. I need 1 vote, just 1 vote. . .

    Very kind of you. I just felt that the bucktail was too splayed out but nevertheless a fishing fly which will get a swim once I move on from tubes and flying Cs this spring.
    Just tied a few more with some ancient woven gold braid that I have discovered amongst my late Dad's tying gear. I'll think of him when I give them a cast. Especially if I get a bend in the rod!

    A little tip for you before you look at your fly - stick it under the tap to settle everything, let it dry and then have a look at it.

    Looking forward to more of your flies.
