  1. Traditional/Fully Dressed Patterns
    Not another bright feather wing. I can only ties these style of flies when I'm in the mood and have time, plenty of time.

  3. Irish Shrimp Fly Patterns
    Browsing through 'Along the Faughan Side' today and looking at the patterns of flies given in it, I still can't help but think that what we now call a Faughan Shrimp is a more modern version of Laurence Cunningham's Orange and Purple Shrimp. Cunningham's patterns must be from the 70s or very...

    I was initially impressed with zip front waders although sceptical about the zip waterproofing properties, the advantages of being able to take a leak without taking the waders down seemed to be a massive boon.

    Hi All, Here's a quick SBS for the sparkly junction piggy - this is smaller than the one I tied earlier. Forgive the 'one picture for everything' - SFF isn't the best upload tool - so I snipped onto a single powerpoint slide and then converted to jpg. You can use free swing - or you could add...

    I took a break from tying swap flies and tied this shrimp fly last night. Oval gold bodies replacing the flat old gold and a badger front hackle. Another one that I do well on when the water's still carrying a bit of colour.

  20. Irish Shrimp Fly Patterns
