Well guys, I'm back from Portnacraig / Pitlochry, having had a superb day fishing and meeting some new and some old forum members (I'll not say who was the oldest :D).

I propose, since I'm absolutely "banjaxed" for want or a better word, and still have the dog to take out and a couple of Lagavullans to down, as someone very kindly left it in the boot of my car, that I'll close this and put the poll up tomorrow morning for the voting to commence.

In the circumstances and since I'm in a great mood, after today (even being fishless), anyone who wants to sneak a last minute entry in, be quick, as I suspect I'll surface around 10.00am tomorrow :D:D.

As for the schedule CB, well it's all mounting up, hence the slight delay in closing the competition :eek::eek:.

A superb late entry there Madmax, and as we now approach 10.00am, I can declare a close to new entries, while I work on cutting / pasting all into the lineup and setting up the poll :).

It will be here soon, for voting :).

neat tie fishing sanny you have my vote;)
I'm an honest guy shouldn't be voting for the competition:)
Thanks Madmax and the others who have voted
Glad you like it. The fish certainly seemed to like it too that day, just hope it brings me more hook ups throughout he rest of the season.
I'm back down the Tweed at the end of the month and It certainly will be the first fly to be given a swim.

Thanks Guys

Thanks for the comments and the votes guys :)

I bet there will be a few of Sanny's wee tubes getting tied up with all this dry weather and low water we are having at the moment ;)

Cheers
Neil
Thanks for all the votes so far lads,
Get some of these tungsten tubes tied up lads, another one of these wee crackers took another 2 salmon and a nice seatrout of South Park at the beginning of the week for one of my mates.
I know what I will be using on Ballogie tomorrow.

Fishing Sanny, Love the Pedwell Killer and want to tie up some. Can't seem to find Pearl Holographic Tinsel anywhere. I have the usual silver/gold holographic but was wondering where do you get Pearl Holographic? Thanks,

William

Sorry William, a typing error on my behalf.
Its medium width pearl lurex on top of the black thread, a very simple fly to tie but seems to be effective at the moment,try tying them on 6mm tubes also.
