  1. Traditional/Fully Dressed Patterns
    Aglaia (Philips 7 / Redditch 1 1/2) The first of Blacker's Three Graces from Fitzgibbon (1850) and arguably the first silver bodied fly (neck and neck with Jamie Wright's Silver Doctor or the Silver Wilkinson, also by Wright). Dx
  2. Irish Shrimp Fly Patterns
    Hi All, Here is a version of a fly that Grassy Knollington tied for the November tie of the month: Judy of the bogs November 2018 Tie of the Month competition - Ladies Night For me, it was probably one of the best flies of the year. It looks perfect for summer lows. This is my shot at it...
  3. Irish Shrimp Fly Patterns
    Hi All, Here are another couple of flies based on Pheasant feathers - an extension of the last experiment: https://www.salmonfishingforum.com/forums/irish-shrimp-fly-patterns/186436-pheasant-irish-shrimp-second-attempt.html This time I've dyed the rump and neck (veiling) feathers with...
  4. Irish Shrimp Fly Patterns
    Hi All, Here's another shot at an experiment to tie a fly from Pheasant feathers. I liked the first attempt but didn't do a good rib and the rubbish picture doesn't show the natural colours very well...
  5. Irish Shrimp Fly Patterns

  6. Off Topic Lounge
    (Proper Mumsnet stuff - sorry - but you guys seem to have a more robust exposure to painkillers, so...) I have done something Very Bad to my neck (the left side is really swollen, it hurts to touch and is absolute agony when I move), but I HAVE to work tomorrow - I have a really important, big...
  7. General Board
    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. Met the Ghillie, pleasantries exchanged with the other rods i then set off for the most appealing spot. Anticipation...

  10. Picture Gallery
    I've hardly been fishing this year at all. What with a new work venture and a lack of favourable conditions I've lost a bit of the fishing mojo. You sort of need to keep it up to keep the motivation up - if that makes sense. Anyway, the recent rain has got the salmon and sea trout moving in my...
