  1. Fly Tying Topics
    Hi folks, When I tie a hackle on, I using sweep back any loose fibres and do one or two turns on top to ensure the thread is holding the fibres incase the stalk breaks. This usually results in most of the fibres being swept to the top and bottom of the hook and when tied down it also looks...
  2. Rod Building
    I've been busy building another rod during lockdown. This time its for me :D Its 14ft so i could afford to put a heavier handle on it. I wanted a dark finish apart from the thread work. So ive went for all burnt cork on both handles using blue rubberised cork for the butt and top/bottom of...

    When I was around 14 me and my mates used to exercise the 'Meechie Silence' For those who have never heard of this, as soon as someone proclaims Meechie, everyone in attendance must not mutter a word, or laugh, or breath for that matter. The first person to do so, is duly set upon with fists...

  9. Tie of the month
    I received a PM with a suggestion that perhaps everyone (if wanted) could get the chance to set the theme for each months tying. You know who you are but I’ll let you divulge your name if you want to. I like that idea and so if you’d like it to be adopted let me know. If more than 11 people...

    Anyone fancy a go at a photography themed thread? I’ve always had cameras since I was a kid, Box Brownie, Instamatic, Polaroid, Viewfinder, film SLR, Bridge Superzoom and now a Nikon DSLR.

  17. Fly Tying Topics
    Reading another thread about simple flies and the example of a turbo tube, having not used them before I wondered what effect they had on fishing depth. Would I be right in thinking that if you took two identical flies with the sole exception that one was tied with a 'normal' thread built head...
