Rain

Plan=fishing Result=rain

Off next two days, I am planning to do a whack of fly tying. I have found a couple of nice patterns on the net for olives so will be tying em up. I will post photos. Probably!

Novice Fly Tying

I am a novice fly tier. I wish I was able to turn out those exquisite flies I see guys who have been tying for years effortlessly churn out. It takes me around 10 mins to tie a fly and even then there is no guarantee that it will turn out ok. So I sat [...]

Fly Tying at home !

So seeing as how the old diet started yesterday I thought that today I would start my other New Year resolution and get my fly tying gear out. I set up my rather nifty mag lamp and tied up a few Knlinkhammers and some CDC Blue Winged Olives.

The Complete Fisher. The Klinkhammer

The Complete Fisher – 2nd time. The Klinkhammer

A pretty fine walkthrough on how to tie Klinkhammers !

One of my new year resolutions is to tie many more flies. Oh, later I shall show you some of the rather nice crimbo presents I recieved that will make rting flies a little easier

Glasgow Fly Tying Evening

The Fly Tying night is starting up again…the venue is:: the Yarrow Club at 223 Anniesland Road, Glasgow G13 1RP. The night will be a Wednesday and it starts on the 5th October at 6.30pm.

If I cannot get out and actually go fishing I have decided to pull my gear out and tie some flies…. Seeing as how my better half now uses the kitchen as an office I have had to use a tiny little table to tie up some flies….

Later on this evening I am [...]

Fly Tying Storage

You need somewhere to store all your fly tying stuff right?? You cannot afford a couple of grand on an oak bench so what do you do? You count on the dutch to come up with a practical solution that also looks cool as well. I think so anyway. When I first went to a [...]

Got masel some foam!! (although no foam at the casting “pool”)

So I bought some black foam the other day. The idea is that I tie up some black beetles for the times that there is not actually a hatch going down. I will tie some up during the week and post the pictures. I know that I always say that I will post the pictures [...]

The Fly Tying Night

So I have been going to a fly tying evening…..I wrote about it a few weeks back.It is certainly something to concentrate on for this winter …something to take my mind off uni work anyway. Anyway, Its not on this week for the people that were thinking of going. If you read the blog that [...]
