  1. Fly Tying Topics
    With the great choice of materials these days, it really isn't necessary to dye our own materials, but sometimes it is nice to get just the right colour on the materials you want. For a long time I avoided dying my own fur and feathers. The dying process looked time consuming, messy and...

    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...

    Asked for a few flies for trout I wasn't expecting the answer to be 125 and all in small sizes! Having spent so much time trying to hone my salmon flies last year I'd almost forgotten how awkward these wee ones can be - especially as I like to avoid dropping materials purely because of fly...

  10. Northern European Style Patterns
    A wee thing I came up with at 3am. Got a hold of a lovely hot pink pheasant skin, which the dog subsequently ate. I love the brass Eumer cones, they really push back the water and fluff up the materials. I'm a big fan of marabou on coneheads, works well with stiffer materials. I'll get some...

    Having, in the course of my legal career, encountered several cases of cancer acquired by handling toxic dyes, I worry about using picric-dyed materials. I have just read on the internet a paper by a chemist suggesting that picric dust is toxic. I wonder if such dust can be left as a residue on...
