Can we have a fly please? Can we?
As specified by Daughters 1 and 2. Big ones with 'Red and Purple and Pink and Red'; another with 'Blue like Elsa.....'..
Not sure what the fish would say but they went down well with the girls.
Bit of a long shot.
My Daiwa Alltmor 2 piece 10' 6" #8 -10 has a br9ken top section that I'm hoping to replace.
I'd be willing to buy the complete rod if one is available.
It's the slim purple blank with purple whippings.
Had the rod for over 25 years and love the action with an 8...
A pattern that came to me whilst tying up some grayling flies.
Used "paprika" coloured wool as the body over orange globrite
Purple, red, orange and yellow bucktail with some flash
A simple "wooly gunn" I suppose :D
Got a few to try in different colours now
I was looking through an old hard disk looking for a picture of a fly I tied a few years ago. I didn't find it but did find this one I tied a good few years back.
I think it was forum member Klops who first showed this with a black wing. It reminded me of the Editor which I preferred with a...
Tied these up for a friend for this spring season.
Waters are running high and clear. These should give a good profile with some added POP.
Both were tied in hand for fishing on McNeese #2 irons.
I tied this one a few weeks ago and sort of forgot about it.
I had plenty of success years ago with an editor with a purple wing. At one time, I wouldn't fish unless I'd a purple winged editor on the cast somewhere.
I can't really remember the last time I fished one now.
This is based on the...
I've been going through a phase of tying winged flies again recently. I've been tying some of the Irish patterns from Malone's book which are much simpler to put together than many of the classics.
Many of them consist of simple enough wings of Mallard over strands of GP Tippets and the claret...
The old feller caught this last week i forgot to post it for him,fishing the fly at night using floater line intermediate tip,with a 10# purple shrimp pattern- i know now he wasn't expecting this to take the flee.
Estimation 12lbs maybe.Was a fat and very chunky fish.
He appears to be having some kind of orgy
Carcass: Eumer small plastic tube cut to 15mm
Thread: Whatever you got
Tag: Glo Brite No4 orange
Rib: Hends fine silver wire

A variation of the pot-bellied pig, tied in purple with dubbed body and eyes at front and no jc at back.
Eyes are made from fibre optic living eyes, with bugbond on end and coloured with marker, leaving the front clear as “pupils” which glow with uv light, as seen in second pic - under a uv...
Been ages since I tied a Roganesque pattern (though I think this may be Enright) - the purple Guinea Hen at size 2 - very much in the 'like a little jewel' camp.
Still hate herl heads - and NO this isn't a hacksaw herl job!
Slight variance from the pattern as the wing was screaming 'cap me' so...
