    Playing around with feathers - tried to convert a ghillie to a ghillie Spey. Head is massive, 'boat' wing isn't the best but overall looks nice when wetted down. Tight lines for 2020, Patrick

    I've just come back from my annual July week on the Helmsdale. The Spring run was very badly affected with disease with hundreds of dead fish pulled from the river. Many rod caught fish were in a very sorry state and our ghillie pulled a twenty five pounder out of a burn that was on it's last...

  7. Shrimp Fly Patterns
    Tied on a single waddington to get the end of the body closer to the join. I've also put the tail in halfway in the Jockie Scott style which I think works. Colin.
  8. Hairwing Fly Patterns
    After tying the Ally's and Cascade using the ideas I'd discovered on Dai Jones' website, I though I'd have a go at a Ghillie.

    So many variations on the Ghillie theme so I mixed a few up . First go at this fly so comments welcome. One of Hemmy's caught for me on the Tummel last year so in recognition I've put in a green "****". Colin.

    With news of big fish about, i sped off at breakneck speed down the A96, clean draars pulled on the night before for speed in the morning, for a day rod on the Northie yesterday.

    I have just seen on the Newtyle river tay beat facebook page that the fishing hut was broken into and lots of tackle has been stolen.This will be a major blow to Andy the ghillie. It would be worth looking out for any suspicoius tackle deals going around especially in the perthshire area. Andy...

    Hi All, Really struggling with cameras and loading pics on SFF! Always the wrong way round even when in portrait - I've had to add two pictures as can't get one that is good. Anyway: Here's an experimental tying of a Ghillie in a Irish Shrimp style - hopefully the Shrimp purists will...

  19. Gillie's Tales
    A guest at Delphi told me a story about a Scottish Ghillie and an American visitor. The Scottish Ghillie was on a beat of one of the Classic Rivers. Most visitors there knew how to salmon fish, they were regulars or experienced and he would not usually suffer much outside of that. An American...
