    I came across these Rio line products on Sportfish site , the appearance is identical and the only difference on the wording is the word Body , the lines have a different spec, if using Rio tips which of these lines gives is a better overall balance , or can they be used on both ,
  8. Shrimp Fly Patterns
    A good friend swears by using green flies in the summer and having seem how many fish he catches, I'm prepared to give it a go. This is a copy of what he uses, as you can see nothing too groundbreaking! Really liking using softer hen hackles to give a bit more body to the fly. For the body I am...

  10. Irish Shrimp Fly Patterns
    I wasted more mallard there one day trying the Fiery Brown from Chris Mann's book. I then thought that those dull colours used for that pattern might make for a nice dull Irish shrimp. The first attempt used Fiery Brown seals fur for the body, middle hackle of natural brown cock and a Black...
  11. Fly Tying Topics
    Hello Chaps, This weekend I am topping up my flies box for when we get back fishing. Was going to start with Sunray Shadows. What length of body to overall length do you use? Plus lengths do you tie? How hig and small would you dare to go? Interested to see what you do and your opinion.
  12. 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 -...

    Tied on a 1/2" tungsten tube with lead wire to help build the body shape. UV fluorescent materials to provoke ;)
  16. Shrimp Fly Patterns
    I sat down intending to copy Wormos Magma Shrimp but using a Gold LiteBrite body instead of Silver. After doing the tail and rear body I realised I had forgotten the tail hackle. So I decided to put in a Sunburst Bucktail midwing and changed the front body to Black Polar Dub while I was at it...

  19. Fly Tying Topics
    So after a couple of attempts I created a body that I like last night going from photo 1 to photo 2 with smaller wing area and slightly shorter throat. I also didn't like the flattened body hackle and so on advice stood it back up. I'm not sure about the wing though. Should the built wing...
