  3. Northern European Style Patterns
    I will soon begin tying some new flies and I am asking this question of you here in Northern European Patterns sub forum. I ask here rather than the General forum because these are what I enjoy tying and fishing. I use these style flies for steelhead and other species here but there is a...

    afternoon guys , now I know not everyone does their own flees but I find myself catching on new creations every year , maybe it's because I experiment alot , this year it was a variant I posted of a red devil and a bright orange and copper tube also done the damage , I had fished my usual...

  8. New Member Introductions
    Hi everyone, I've just rejoined the forum after a decade of absence. I used to be called "granters" but couldn't get my name back! Had to give up fishing for a while due to health issues but back with a bang . I'm a fly tying addict and will chip in with the odd step-by-step step. Usually tie...
  9. North American Fly Patterns
    The Cosseboom was named after its inventor, Mr John Cosseboom. He designed the pattern in 1935. While an extremely effective and popular pattern for decades in Atlantic Canada and New England, it is no longer commonly used. I always have a few in my fly boxes as it still produces for me...
  10. Traditional/Fully Dressed Patterns
    Two traditional patterns, had to make alterations for some materials so they are a bit different from the originals.

    Flies inspired by the beautiful fly tied by Jockiescott, presented in the Traditional/Fully Dressed Patterns section. All on hooks #4.
  12. Hairwing Fly Patterns
    It's been a long while since I tied anything more demanding than Sunray's & Monkey's on tubes but watching the Tie of The Month thread every 30 days or so has taken a toll on me........ So I thought, why not try something like that Cascade style fly? Colors were a challenge because most colored...
  13. Rookies Corner
    Hi all, new to salmon flies after tying for trout for 20+ years. Love the vast array of patterns for salmon, personally trying to master traditional flies this year. Having bought lots of books on salmon flies, both recent and old, I notice that fritz hasn’t made its way in the salmon tying...
  14. Rookies Corner
    Hi all, rookie Tyler ? What feathers would people suggest for salmon hackles on shrimp type patterns and cascade type patterns? I normally shop at Lathkills would anyone suggest any other supplier? Many thanks.
  15. General Board
    I was given a reprint of Kelson's 'The Salmon Fly' for Christmas which is a fascinating book although some of the practices are pretty redundant e.g. fly tying without a vice. I quite fancy tying a few classic patterns for next season but they seem to usually be tied on #2 or 1/0, 2/0 hooks...

  19. Hairwing Fly Patterns
    I quite often sit own to tie a pattern without a specific one in mind, often it just out to resemble something else. For instance I just mix up elements from well known and established flies. I guess we all would get bored if we say, only tied 5 or so patterns, which is probably all that's...
  20. Traditional/Fully Dressed Patterns
    The three patterns invented by the Allgood family circa 1900 for the North Tyne beat and published by Kelson in Tips in 1906. They are The Nunwick (the one with the JC - Rev Allgood), Red Tag - all red/claret body (Rev Allgood), and Eve's Fancy with the topping wing (Miss M Eve Allgood). All...
