You can tell I don't fish much over winter......
......because I've already started on my tying for next season!
Feeling a bit 'March Browny' today, and when I popped in to the All Water Flyfishing shop in Harrogate on my way home from a meeting yesterday, I couldn't help but snaffle some very nice looking Callibaetis-flavoured turkey biots. They've proved quite handy for the MB application, first on what was initially intended to be a Jingler but in actually fact came out far too demure and lightly dressed to be such - the result, a strange sort of trad-ish collar hackled dry.
Then I turned to emergers and a patten inspired by something I saw Cumbrian expert Geoff Johnston tie last year, with a tweak or two based on something a friend sent me recently. I'd like to think that this emerger, a MB spider and a 'proper' MB Jingler should cover the bases I need covering when the big beasts start hatching next spring. Just a bit of a wait, that's all....
