    All of those flee's are really something, especially those tied on the single hooks,I can see them waking really well in real fishing conditions-killers all of them.
    The Black n Orange tube is a real gem, tied very very well,I just wonder how it would present itself though, probably more on the surface than in, bet the Sea Trout will give it some grief on a black night!.
    GK's Muddasquid,I'd keep it in a cage with a little wheel, give it a name and feed and water it twice a day!
    Absolutely amazing, every single one of them, am very jealous indeed.
    Not merely food for thought there rather than a whacking great banquet !
    Top stuff,Pedro.

    Like this baby, with the bright colour at least i would be able to see it skating across the surface from 20 yrds, great tie. Maybe sub' the white deer for black but would definitely kill.

    Default L.A Toe

    I used to tie a muddler version of a Goats Toe for a friend who was fairly successful with them on Loch Brora.

    As I'm finding it difficult to get good quality blue pheasant neck feathers I now put a few sprigs of dyed blue lady amherst in amongst the mix.

    I'm with Rennie on this one R. E food for thought.

    Im all for boyant flies on sinking lines for Salmon when conditions dictate but never have I though of using deer hair for buoyancy. I particularly like the muddler esc cone head idea. The singles are all esquisitlivy tied too and would work well on a intermediate or hover for seatrout fished fast they would be in the surface as opposed to being on it. Great idea for TOTM.
