  1. Tie of the month
    Welcome to the May 2020 Tie of the Month competition. TOTM Introduction The format of the 2020 Tie of the Month competition will remain the same as it was last year as it worked so well i.e. open to everyone, a separate section for any newcomers to salmon fly tying and all you need to do for...
  2. Tie of the month
    March TOTM theme: We're in Lockdown - Improvise! I was chatting to my parents this week, who are now both in their 80's, and they were telling me about the Smallpox epidemic in the early 1960's. Apparently, shopkeepers were treated like lepers because they were travelling around delivering...

    March TOTM theme: 'An apostle of Ireland' Saint Patrick died circa 461 A.D. in Saul, Ireland, and is said to have been buried in the nearby town of Downpatrick, County Down. Saint Patrick is recognized as the patron saint of Ireland, and his writings, noted for their humble voice, include the...
  4. Tie of the month
    February TOTM theme: 'A Scotsman at heart' I figured I'd risk abusing my position and your good nature by being self-centred and basing this month's tie on myself by way of introduction. I'm in my fifties and started fishing as a tender 4 year old with a dapping rod that felt like a telegraph...
  5. Tie of the month
    As I'm sure you are all aware TOTM 2019 was my first year of tying salmon flies and giving the competition a go. As a result I learned so much from you all that I genuinely feel my tying moved forward significantly more than it would have otherwise. Mind you as the saying goes the more you...

    Is this the biggest salmon of modern times? Last huge salmon we caught during salmon research was 25kg or little over 55 pounds. This one however was lot larger than that. We are currently making a documentary about Utsjoki salmon research, and we will keep the size of this monster as a secret...

    Young Michael O'Kane of Draperstown (a.k.a. Kane) on this forum once again managed to show his world class level at Spey casting competition. Michael was fifth in the World Championshipships last weekend in England in the main 15'1" event. Just to qualify for the final is an achievement in...

See what we have the visiting angler to have a go at and our very keenly priced season tickets. For visitors to the the Fair and...
  15. Tie of the month
    The entries are up, very well done. Muddlers was always going to be a tricky theme, we don't tie many of them for Salmon. That said' there are some great ideas that look like they would actually get fished and I notice that the ideas have carried through to the Fly Tying forums - which is...
  16. Tie of the month
    22 Entries this month!! At this rate there will be more entries than voters;);) What a great response to a pretty esoteric theme and, once again, some great flies to copy, tie and showcase the skills. For anyone who isn't a commercial tyer, and that's most of us here, hopefully this is a wee...
  17. The Art of Casting
    I realise I am fortunate at times. I was fortunate to be out on Lough Conn and Cullin today with Gerard Downey and Michael O'Kane. its not everyone that will have an opportunity to watch close up, or indeed practice competition casting with those among the very best there is in competition...
  18. Tie of the month
    Wow! 31 Entries this month, got to be a record, so well done. Of course the downside is that we'll probably be all fighting for the same 50 votes ;);). There's at least 10 TOTM winners in there and looking through the flies as I copied the files I can tell you I'd fish them all, some would...

  20. Tie of the month
    The December 2017 Tie Of The Month Entrants In case anyone needs reminding, the theme was North American Flies and we have a wide variety of styles to please everyone I think, from the traditional hairwings to shrimp flies to spey flies and at least one 'ultra modern' intruder pattern. Please...
