    Hi. I am Selling my Lagartun Oval Tinsel & Wire which is brand new & very difficult to get these days & is the best oval tinsel available on the market as it is the highest quality available & does not tarnish. 2 x Lagartun Oval Gold (Size Small) 1 x Lagartun Oval Copper (Size Small) 1 x...
  2. Irish Shrimp Fly Patterns
    Browsing through 'Along the Faughan Side' today and looking at the patterns of flies given in it, I still can't help but think that what we now call a Faughan Shrimp is a more modern version of Laurence Cunningham's Orange and Purple Shrimp. Cunningham's patterns must be from the 70s or very...
  3. Step by Step
    Hi All, Here's a quick SBS for the sparkly junction piggy - this is smaller than the one I tied earlier. Forgive the 'one picture for everything' - SFF isn't the best upload tool - so I snipped onto a single powerpoint slide and then converted to jpg. You can use free swing - or you could add...

  7. Irish Shrimp Fly Patterns
    Taken from Peter O'Reilly's book. Fatally attractive to fresh grilse apparently. I like the Grey Mallard hackle as something different from the norm. The original pattern says slips tied in all around but I wound the hackle :confused: Tag - Oval Silver Tail - GP Red Breast hackle Rib - Oval...
  8. Irish Shrimp Fly Patterns

  9. North American Fly Patterns
    Here is pattern #5 for my MSA "desert island" auction fly box. While I don't know the history of this fly, I can assure you it is very effective. It îs clearly a variation of the "Black Bear x butt" series of flies so it is a fairly modern pattern. I have had great success with this pattern...
