  1. Shrimp Fly Patterns
    I found some pictures of some older flies I tied in the past - had forgotten about them. Jungle cock optional and I like to use badger ( still got my fantastic Pat Nolan badgers!!). One is bucktail tail - and the others have a smidge if supporting bucktail but then tails are marble fox guard...

    Eh up, I'm looking to source a quality Fluro. Yellow Bucktail-,now I'm quite particular in my bucktail and particularly the shade of Yellow. Idealy it should be a very bright Dayglo Yellow, very much akin to a Safety Jacket Yellow, strong in shade and not at all wishy washy and certainly not...

    Knocked up a few very simple saltwater seatrout jobs this afternoon. Globrite bodies in various colours under mirage covered in UV resin Mixed bucktail wings Hopefully give them a cast next week Cheers Cb
  8. Shrimp Fly Patterns
    Here's a bit of a play on a Spring Gold Willie Gunn but trying to use feathers rather than Bucktail (there's a little Bucktail kick at the back of the fly as a rostrum). Tight lines, Patrick

    I don't have any dark/black GP breast feathers for the tail so I've just used black bucktail
  10. Hairwing Fly Patterns
    A pattern that came to me whilst tying up some grayling flies. Used "paprika" coloured wool as the body over orange globrite Purple, red, orange and yellow bucktail with some flash A simple "wooly gunn" I suppose :D Got a few to try in different colours now Cheers Cb
  11. Hairwing Fly Patterns
    I've lost the bug a bit now for fly tying again now that the season has finished. I bought a blue bucktail last weekend on ebay. I'm not sure why I did as I don't use much blue bucktail in many of my flies. A bit of an impulse purchase. It arrived early this week and I took it to the shed and...

    Can anybody recommend where I can get good bucktail mail order? I’ve had some rubbish the last two times I’ve ordered stuff. Cheers
  13. Hairwing Fly Patterns

  14. Shrimp Fly Patterns
    Wormo's wonderful TD pattern reminded me of one I found in one of my boxes during the week that I don't remember tying. ? It is an Allys in more of a Flamethrower form. I must have seen it on this forum or something. Not sure. I haven't tried it yet but hope to soon. Tying is as follows...
  15. Hairwing Fly Patterns
    With the plethora of materials available now I find myself looking at the old stalwarts like the willie gunn or Alistair and wondering about the best use for bucktail flies. Personally I think tubes tied 'in the round' provide a more solid silhouette and must push more water and create more...
  16. Shrimp Fly Patterns
    After last nights effort someone kindly copied me with a record and photo of an original fly as tied by John Harris who invented and named the fly for and after the Reverend Jennifer Mole who he came to know when they were both school governors. So here is as near a faithful copy as I can get...

    It was seeing DrPatrickT 's wadds that made me go and have a try at them :thumb:, a bit of practice still needed and a final coat of clear varnish.. but I'm sure they'll take fish :). 35mm Waddinton Chartreuse thread Opal mirage body Utc florescent chartreuse wire rib Chartreuse bucktail and...
  18. Hairwing Fly Patterns
    Here's my first shot at proper Waddingtons. These are 25 and 35 min shanks. Used heat shrink for hook hold. They are pretty much quartered but the side quarters are slightly darker and longer. I know JC isn't needed but I had some big stuff that wasn't going to get used. I tried a much sparser...
