    Ian Baine Special (variant) As it says.
  2. Vintage Tackle Discussion
    Hi, I wonder if any one of you experts here has seen one. Do they exist? Could it be a special order? L
  3. Shrimp Fly Patterns
    First time I've managed to get one of these almost to my liking.

    Keeping it for now....
  5. Irish Shrimp Fly Patterns
    Everyone has their favourite Shrimp fly, there are as many named patters as there are colour combinations. If I have these in my fly box I'm happy. Bann Special, Curry's, Foxford, Apache, Wilkinson and Orange & Black. Tyed without JC or veilings.

  12. North American Fly Patterns
    A favorite for the Cascapedia on a #6 Patriot Double. The body is a holographic, rather than plain, gold tinsel.

    Not on the fly, and not my largest ever, but first fish of the season is always special.

    -2 here today on the stunning west coast of Scotland. The sun doesn't get high enough to hit the water at this location this time of year. Quite a bit of ice in the loch.
