  7. Hairwing Fly Patterns
    Iain Bain Special I was intrigued by Lamsons comments about the original dressing in an earlier post by Wormo. I am always interested in the history of a fly. After a bit of searching I found a video on YouTube by Iain SB tying this fly. Is he the creator maybe? Tying an Iain Bain Special -...

  10. Hairwing Fly Patterns
    I read an article online recently about the Munro Killer from the creators son. He said the black wing should be much longer than the hook and the yellow underwing. I tied one on a size 6 double. I then tried one with a holo gold body and added an orange wing between the black and yellow...

    A variant of the Black Eagle pattern taken from the 'Farlows Salmon Flies' by Martin Lanigan-O'Keeffe. The wings suppose to have cinnamon tips which would match copper tinsel, unfortunately turkey cinnamon feathers from my stock have got quite damaged tips, so have decided to go with the white...

  14. Hairwing Fly Patterns
    Still working at a Willie Gunn / Gunnish looking fly. I think I have trouble because I do not fish orange & black here ever so it's hard to make orange & black flies, does that make sense? Made on rather small doubles I've had since the 1980's, I have some longer shank and intend to get creative.
  15. Hairwing Fly Patterns
    I wasn't sure what section to put this one in but it'll have to do here. This is another one from the old veniards book. The front body was meant to be palmered using black heron but I've used dyed black ringneck pheasant instead. The original pattern in the book also gave orange for the seals...
