  1. Northern European Style Patterns
    Here are some red franci (or francesses ???) the way I like to tie them based on what has worked for me. They have actually been more of a sea trout catcher on the Scottish Dee but have also had a number of salmon. I first tied this version at a kitchen table the night before the last day of a...
  2. 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...

    Fishing (well, trying to) on the Tay at the moment. The river is filthy brown but dropped 9 inches overnight on our beat. The Isla is running clear today but the main river is chocolate soup. No one seems to know the cause. Anyone further up river have any intel? A landslide somewhere perhaps...

    There are many contradictions when it comes to salmon and trout here is one for each. Why do Salmon migrate great distances to cold northern waters to feed when scale readings show that Salmon stop or slow down their feeding habits in winter months. It is a known fact that Brown trout and...
