How unusual is it for the...

    1st thing is to degrease. I'm no expert when it comes to dying but this is a fairly straight forward job. Some hot water in the bottom of the sink with some fairy liquid. Agitate the materials and give them a good swirl. I let them steep then swirled around some more... Rinse thoroughly in...

    So what will 2020 bring us in the salmon fishing world, any predictions? All doom and gloom again or any glimmers of hope?

  15. Fly Tying Topics
    I was quite happy with this, until I discovered that the pattern wasn't quite complete. But having already varnished the head, I figured that I would just keep it and give it a try when the season starts over here. Has anyone experienced a similar situation and found that the "wrong" pattern...
