  1. Traditional/Fully Dressed Patterns
    Not another bright feather wing. I can only ties these style of flies when I'm in the mood and have time, plenty of time. This one was close to getting stripped as I left too much space at the head area and I hate seeing leftover shank at the front of hooks, instead I gave it a big woolly head...
  2. Other Tackle
    More pics and drivel to bore you with :lol: - One of the many lockdown projects - a new wading staff Found a well-seasoned shank in one of the sheds and a drawer of various antlers I have accumulated over time, so decided to make a new wading staff! This one for general use, I have made others...
  3. North American Fly Patterns
    First attempt at this one, found pattern on youtube and looked good so copied?. Tied on a waddington shank with bead chain eyes to ensure it swims hook point up.

  7. Hairwing Fly Patterns
    A Kinermoney Killer and a try at an Editor in the Flamethrower style - with apologies to Sandy Leventon. #10 Patriots with the usual Partridge straight shank / curved shank lottery.
  8. Classified Wanted
    Hi Looking for some of these. Let me know if you can help
  9. Traditional/Fully Dressed Patterns
    My interpretation from the pic of this mutant spey in Kelson (given the pattern was never written up) Head could've been better but it's on an un-tapered shank. Didn't have any Nankeen heron so used plain brown Shoveller - a bit webbier and lighter than the real thing. Dx
