Yellow May’s & Half Hogs

So I set myself a wee challenge the other day. I was getting a bit bored with tying the same old flies- which I have got to admit does make sense as I only fish a few flies (which hardly anyone asks me about anyway) when I came across a fly called a half hog. […]

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.

I will be there, unless it stops raining, in which case I will be fishing….and then wander in late!

All set and then….

So I had worked my ass off the last few days so that I could get fishing today and guess what happened?? Yup it started to rain……pfft typical! Anyway, I spent a couple of hours today tying up some Klinkhammer specials, I have been finding that when a fish took my knlinkhammers they seem to […]

Very Industrious Fly Tying!!

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 […]
