  1. Fly Tying Topics
    I'm wondering if anyone has done a step by step of tying a Yellow Dolly? I think Ross McDonald posted a dressing of it in the April 2018 copy of Trout & Salmon. If anyone has a copy and is able to post it on the forum it would be much appreciated! I fancy tying a few up for trying on the Alness...

    For Pedro, apologies for the photos, but was in a rush between jobs. It's raining again so I got the kit out. Full disclosure, I've only tied these over this close season, but they look good in water and no reason why the wouldn't work..... Materials Wing: Banana Rabbit Strip - this is...

  4. Hairwing Fly Patterns
    I've lost the bug a bit now for fly tying again now that the season has finished. I bought a blue bucktail last weekend on ebay. I'm not sure why I did as I don't use much blue bucktail in many of my flies. A bit of an impulse purchase. It arrived early this week and I took it to the shed and...
  5. Step by Step
    Most on the forum won't know that I have an online blog. I don't update it too often and there's no science or ground breaking stuff on it. Just my own personal thoughts and rantings on salmon fishing and clay shooting. Someone asked if was possible to do a step bt step on the fly I tied for...

    A couple of tube versions of the Longtail thing I tie. Brass Eumer cone for mid water Plastic for sticking on a fast sinker. I haven't had these in the water yet but I just know they'll each take 7 fish next time I'm out ? I'll do a step by step , got some interesting materials in there...

  10. Northern European Style Patterns
    I didn't get any really good photos of the finished fly because I did a step by step for the American Forum. I did get this one which will give you an idea of how large I make the Dee Monkey and all similar patterns. The tube (Pro Sportfisher Micro) is quite short but I use 1 1/2" of clear...

    I post almost all my flies and stories on either this forum or the North American Fly Fishing Forum but this post is on my own blog. There are many stories and articles of interest for those who become bored over the winter :cool: This is the step by step and the pattern may work for you too...

    SBS: Willie Gunn Conehead Hi All, I've been asked by a couple of people what I mean by cuffs (or veils as they are supposed to be called) so I thought I'd do a step by step for a Willie Gunn Conehead. I catch very little - so up to you if you want to copy :). This is a simple fly and uses...

    Hi All, I've been using some all-in-one Acid fast dyes from a craft outlet I found randomly when I was searching for dyes for furs and feathers (Omega Dyes). There are better dye systems out there - but this one is quite quick, non-toxic and minimal fuss. Effectively, stick you...
