    I'd be interested to know what knots people use, especially for tying on flies and attaching tubes. Thanks.

    Last month the challenge was to improvise with many commonly used materials not allowed including most dyed and all exotic materials. This didn't affect the high quality of flies produced and so it's well worth a a visit and while you're there please vote for your favourite. Tie of the Month...
  6. Trout Fishing
    I investigated another local footpath today: getting to know these rather well now. This one for much of its path followed a couple of tiny brooks. I even found a junction pool where two met to double their size to the colossal width of perhaps 4ft. Interestingly even after a month of no rain...

    Sitting out the lockdown here in Newfoundland, Canada I’ve had lots of time to read and reread some of my many salmon fishing books. After reading the interesting parts of “Fisherman’s Pie”, mainly the contributions from A.H.E. Wood and Ernest Crosfield, I’ve started in on “Fishing the Floating...

    What size of flies at what time of year is recommended
  10. General Board
    Hello, does anyone know the name of good salmon flies or what makes a good spring fly.
  11. Fly Tying Topics
    I've started of a second series of live fly tying, this time the theme is claret salmon flies. Perhaps not quite as popular a colour as with trout lough flies, claret non the less has some very good salmon patterns. Hopefully you will enjoy these and it will give you something to do and watch...
  12. Angling Literature Section
    I came across this book in a charity shop and not really looked at it until now. It's not a cumbersome, boring behemoth - it's short and easy to read. Slightly dated but superb coverage of all types of fly. It's definitely a book I should have read whilst learning to tie - it has simple to...
  13. Irish Shrimp Fly Patterns
    Over the last few weeks of lock down,[without the bars] I have enjoyed the many tyings of Irish Shrimp Flies, am I right in thinking a lot of these flies are area or river specific, if so what pattern would you lads and lassies consider to be the best all rounder and why? Just curious. John

  17. Fly Tying Topics
    Hi All. I decided to start fly tying again so thought that I would only tie two patterns in different sizes for the coming seasons & hoping that I stay Safe & well & also hope everyone else keep well as it is disastorous how many lives have been taken & also the problems that it is causing...
  18. Swap Shop
    I would like to trade these salmon flies for a good quality used river trout rod 9 feet or under for a 4 or 5 wt line , cosmetic appearance does not matter as long as in good working order. There is 16 doubles parks etc on quality hooks and there is 12 scandinavian tubes with frodin tungsten...

    Picked up this bird from a local gamekeeper, it died overnight on him, nice wings on it think it would make great sedge flies, murroughs or green Peters, seems to be a very dark colour
  20. Feather Wing Patterns
    After seeing the beautiful built winged patterns on the classic section, I thought I'd try a couple of mallard wings again. I really do struggle with mallard and I can assure you all that there was a lot of Mallard wasted in creating these two small flies. I tried two different slips from...
