    No Willie Gunn has been posted yet , so I'll be the first. This one is tied in the Scandinavian way, as the original WG has got no feathers, hackles here are tied using no feathers as well. Hence a list of materials for this fly is quite short: fox and a bit of flashing

    Tail: orange polar bear
    Body: black floss
    Rib: oval gold
    1st hackle: sunburst cock

    The standard just keeps improving every month. And that's from starting at a high standard.

    Default Lochy Shrimp

    My entry for this month is one of Ross Macdonald’s patterns. This is probably one of his lesser known flies but is deadly when the grilse are about.

    Tag: Silver wire
    Tail: Black Arctic Runner, Yellow Arctic Runner, a few strands of angel hair
    Body: Silver Lite Brite Dubbing
    Rib: Silver Wire
    Hackle: Blue Cock Hackle (the original is blue badger hackle but I prefer to tie it with a standard blue hackle)

    Default Beauly Snow Fly

    First time tie of this fly. I bottled out of the spun mohair in favour of the orange hackle.
