  1. Northern European Style Patterns
    In an attempt to reduce the number of flies in my boxes I've been trying to tie a few patterns in a range of sizes and hook types to cover the conditions & presentations I usually fish. The 'Touch of Grey' post was my first go. This time I went for something that sort of resembles a Sierra...
  2. Picture Gallery
    Daughter and I took to the high ground today as the tide wasn't suitable to walk the beach . As we watched some seagulls getting fidgety above the water about half a mile out up popped a dolphin . Too far away for any sort of picture but it was great to see it and anticipate when and where it...

    I arrived home from the Dee to find an envelope in the post. Inside were some Vulturine Galena feathers. No letter or name inside. A massive thank you to the sender. It is this sort of gesture and all the advice that make the Fly Tying section on this forum such a pleasure.

  9. Off Topic Lounge
    Surprised nobody else has mentioned this, another angler whose books and articles I read as a teenager has sadly passed away. His tackle innovation was good, personally I loved his 10ft Rutland fly rod, and that rod travelled all over the place with me catching trout, and occasionally sea trout...
  10. General Board
    I sometimes fish with a chap I know on the bottom Tweed. He's about the fishiest person I've ever met, by that I mean he's just one of those blokes who not only does everything well but he also just sort of is immersed in it when he's fishing, hard to explain but it's like he's one of the...

    I am likely to have the opportunity to get up close to some boar in the next few weeks, and could obtain some hair/bristles. Could anyone explain what the nature of bristles used in some salmon flies (?Francis? ?Snaelda?) is, and therefore what sort of hair/bristles I should be looking for...
