  2. Shrimp Fly Patterns
    A good friend swears by using green flies in the summer and having seem how many fish he catches, I'm prepared to give it a go. This is a copy of what he uses, as you can see nothing too groundbreaking! Really liking using softer hen hackles to give a bit more body to the fly. For the body I am...

  6. Fly Tying Topics
    Hi, When I was tying my Cascade doubles I also tied a few with green butts but I have never fished with a green butt cascade & wondered if it makes any difference or not to catches. It would be good to hear opinions on this as I like the look of the fly with the green butt which I used Varivas...

  8. Irish Shrimp Fly Patterns
    I first saw this pattern in Peter O'Reilly's book around 20 years ago but had never tried it. Gwelsher sent me some flies one time and there was a flouresc green shrimp among them. I remember using it one evening at the river a few years back when I hooked 5 salmon in a few hours and there were...

  12. Fly Tying Topics
    Hi there I'm going to fish the Lower Varzuga the second week of June this summer. The general idea would be to use single/double when needing small flies, and tubes for the bigger ones. So far I've tied these flies : Flamethrower Yellow/Black/Orange (gold body) size 8-10 double GP style size...

  16. Hairwing Fly Patterns
    This is a copy of my most successful 'green' fly. My dad brought me some flies from a shop in Donegal Town in the early 2000s. This was one of them and caught me four grilse in a day in July that same year. I haven't used one since but might be tempted to try this one at some stage this season.
  17. Hairwing Fly Patterns
    So, a green bucktail arrived in the post yesterday. I think it was a result of using ebay while under the influence of single malt! :lol: So what to use it for? I remembered a pattern that seemed to regularly appear in Trout & Salmon when I used to buy it in the 1990s but I haven't saw much of...
  18. Northern European Style Patterns
    I tied this one yesterday to pass an hour. I had three wings on it of orange, sunburst yellow and green but thought it looked very gaudy. I tried fiery brown fox but wasn't happy with it. Luckily, my tying buddy was at my side as usual, my springer spaniel, so a quick cut from under his ear...
