Since we are all on lockdown with no fishing I thought I would have a go at designing a fly which perhaps in years to come will remind us of this grim time.
As you will see I am not much of a fly tier but the dressing is there and hopefully some of the brilliant tiers on here will reproduce it...
I've no doubt others will have come up with this but I thought I'd share it with the forum anyways...
When using braid the line spin from flying C,s spinners etc is terribly obvious, it's not in my nature to overlook these things so this is how I've cured it.
It's a good lternative to the...
Is there any real difference between them ?
Jointed rapalas appear to have more movement and vibration from them than a standard rapala, do they catch as many fish as the standard type rapala?
Or are they better suited for a particular kind of water ie coloured or really rough?
I note soe of the starnge (to me!) fishing times and days available/advertised in Iceland, but I was wondering if anybody could recommend a standard 6 days' fishing next year? Preferably May, Spetember or October.
Thanks in advance.
I’ve got a nice quality cape, but it’s a crappy pale orange colour! Is it possible to re-dye a cape?
If so, would you follow the same procedure as standard dying from white?
I want it to be hot orange!!
Any help appreciated
I tied these recently, inspired by the one Antti Guttorm uses in his 'FLY TV' videos. I'm sure I'm not the first to do this, but it's new to me

scrap of foam, coloured red on top
I can't say it's any more or less...
I just got a bunch of slightly narrower than standard spools of thread, but they don't fit by bobbin holder!
I've tried to squeeze the arms of a standard bobbin holder but still don't get any tension on the thread.
Can anyone recommend a good bobbin holder that would solve this problem?
I have the following shooting heads for sale.
In my opinion those heads are the best on the market...just bought new rods which need other heads, so those listed ones can go :)
