    +++++++++++++++++++++ Original Post Only Below This Line - No Entries Below This Line+++++++++++++

    Welcome to the September 2019 Tie of the Month competition.

    This month the theme is Red Alert. Not the mid 1990s computer game, (which was outstanding), just the colour Red.

    September is the back end. Even in the new normal of 98% stale fish after August, we still need to go fishing.

    Red flies are supposed to stimulate aggression in Cock fish close to spawning and they have always been a top choice for late season fishing.

    This month I would like everybody to tie a fly where the dominant colour is RED, not pink, not magenta, but RED.

    Specific Guidance:

    You can tie on any hook, shank or tube you choose.

    You can use other colours, just make sure they donít overshadow that Red.

    You can tie a well known Red pattern, e.g. the ĎRed Devilí; or you can tie a Red version of another pattern e.g. a ĎRed Editorí.

    You can invent a predominately Red pattern of your own design.

    Flouro Red is allowed.

    Eleven commandments:

    1.The fly must have been tied for TOTM and should not have already appeared elsewhere on the forum or t'interweb. You can tie another versiion of one you have already posted but please don't just lift the photo from another thread to TOTM
    2. - This year I would like anybody who has started tying flies in the last 12 months to highlight this on their first entry. It would be great to see a 'best newcomer' shout at the end of the year.
    3. The first rule of TOTM is that everyone is welcome.
    4. The second rule of TOTM is that every day is a School day, try something new or unfamiliar, as well as the things you know you are good at.
    5. The Third rule of TOTM is that variety is the spice of life, we'll try and do something different every month.
    6. The tying competition has a different theme each month.
    7. At the end of the month there will be a poll to vote the winner. The poll will run the entirety of the following month.
    8. Points are awarded for simply entering, with additional points awarded for placing first, second and third.
    9. Whichever participant has the most points at the end of the year wins the prize.
    10. The competition will run from Feb - December 2019
    11. The December competition will be a 'Tie Of The Year' event, where members will vote for the best of the winning flies from the 10 monthly competitions.

    Points:

    1. Each entry will be worth 4 points. You get points for simply entering and these make a significant contribution to the end of year totals.
    2. First place will be worth 10 points.
    3. Second place will be worth 8 points.
    4. Third place will be worth 7 points.
    5. In the event of a tie for first, second, and/or third in number of votes, all tied participants get equivalent points.

    This means you can place well in the whole event, without ever winning a single month's competition

    Again, the September 2019 theme is going to be: Red Flies

    More rules:

    1. One entry per participant.
    2. Entrys must have been tied specifically for the September 2019 TOTM, you can repeat previously posted patterns from here or elsewhere on the web but you need to tie a version specifically for TOTM and not just lift the picture from another location.
    3. The fly must have been tied by you.
    4. One photograph of a fly or flies following the theme. Entries with more than 1 photo will be immediately disqualified. ONE PHOTO ONLY.

    There can only be one choice for me in the red theme. The Red & Gold Irish Shrimp.

    A fly I first tied around 20 years ago and had success on it from that day on. I've shown it on the forum a few times before.

    Quite a simple pattern with no middle hackle and a single body but one of the most effective.

    I first tied it after looking through Peter O'Reilly's book and reading his comments on the fly. "A truly excellent Autumn fly. Those who use it claim that late running grilse and Autumn salmon cannot resist it."

    The version in the photo is a variant of the one from O'Reilly's book which used vielings of red Swan tied above and below the hook. This version has done me fine over the years.

    Tying is as follows:

    Tag: oval gold
    Tail: GP breast
    Body: oval gold
    Front hackles: Creamy badger over red
    Eyes: Jungle Cock

    One of the best skills that an angler can ever develop is knowing the difference between passing the time and wasting it!

    This fly is normally tied in the temple dog style, here is the Autumn Glory in a bit different form.
