    Lockdown is a bit of a pain. Tired of tv, gardening etc? Here's something to keep you occupied for an hour or two. Prepare to be surprised. Tie up a short leader using your favourite nylon/fluoro, whatever. Make a loop, perhaps put in a joint knot, tie on a fly. Find a suitable container, tub...

    I've refrained form commenting on whats going on all about us, primarily as there's very little I can actually do about it all.I'm down as a key worker(rightly or wrongly, as I'm a part of the food chain), my wife had a heart event last year late on and is an at risk person-as we are both age...

    What would be your favourite time of year? For me it’s got to be Spring, everything bursting into life, the start of the fishing season ‘proper’. And the best sign for me is the arrival of the Sand martins. Won’t be too long now...

    So I'm reading one of my favourite authors Hugh Tempest SHERINGHAM, and I thought I'd just look at the Meon at Droxford a favourite haunt of HTS and see what I could find about this little chalkstream. And fell upon this, I had to shut the computer off.! Fording the River Meon at Droxford in...
  6. Traditional/Fully Dressed Patterns
    One of my favourite patterns. Dx

    As we approach the twilight of the seasons in the UK, I must confess to enjoying the run in now and the autumn salmon fishing. Whilst there is no doubt chasing Springers and landing them are probably much more of a reward to most, there is something more about being out fishing at this time of...
  8. Traditional/Fully Dressed Patterns
    Tied from a pic of an original - basically a mixed wing Shannon. This is the second time I've tied this - previously I did it on a full long dee as per the original fly - wanted better proportions so used one of my favourite new hook reworks (3/0 overshank). Wing scruffy but very close to the...
  9. Shrimp Fly Patterns
    Drought conditions on the Wye so tying some tiny flies just in case I bother to waste a few hours. Tied on my favourite #12 CodeP. Partridge have discontinued them :confused:
  10. Hairwing Fly Patterns
    I was going to put these in for TOTM but was beaten to it. One of my favourite flies - sacrilege on a double ???? Tight lines, Patrick
  11. Hairwing Fly Patterns
    A few of my favourite GBWG derivatives ?
  12. Hairwing Fly Patterns
    A lot easier than yesterday's cascade and one I love from years ago. It just looks right ,(no surprise that my favourite trout fly is the Black Pennell!) although this one is a wee bit long in the wing.

    Before this year, I'd never broken a rod in my life. This year, my tally now stands at three! I started the year by getting the middle joint on my favourite rod stuck together. Various friends came over to use their favourite "never fail" techniques to unstick it. They all failed and ripped...

    Santa came and he did spoil... My favourite gift is one I think many of the parents on here would like, as gifts for their children. A book called The Lost Words - a spell book of poems to the words no longer in the Oxford English Dictionary. Bramble and lark and dandelion and fern, magpie and...

    Being a great CND fan I am delighted to see that CND will now offer 4 - 6pcs. models: 13'6" #7, 14' #8, 14'6" #9 and 15' #10. I am sure that the 14' Modell will become my favourite as for most of my dh applications I will have to travel and this mostly by plane. Icelander05

    How about members posting their favourite salmon rod model either as top choice or in preference 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Here is mine: 1. Bruce and Walker Powerlite 15'. (awesome casting power on big rivers) 2. Bruce and Walker Kola Spey Caster 15'-3". (great for early spring fishing) 3. Shakey...
  19. Traditional/Fully Dressed Patterns
    Easily the prettiest of all classic salmon flies IMO - first time I've tied it 'properly' - I dyed up some proper natural blue badger olive specially for the body hackle. One of my absolute favourite patterns and this is my favourite tying that I've done of of it - could perhaps have showed more...
  20. New Member Introductions
    Hello there. Just joined this forum, and wanted to introduce myself. :yo: I mainly fish the rivers and streams of northern Denmark for seatrout, and the western part of Denmark for salmon. I also try to travel as much as possible, and so far I have fished some very different places like Montana...
