Hi jlanders, i have finally been allowed to post replies. What i have been looking primarily for are some of the tying instructions for some of Bobs flies that he devised for the Trout Fisherman / Benson & Hedges competition in the late 70's to late 80's. The Magazines that i saved were unfortunately lost when my garden shed burned down. Iwas in touch with Norman Blake who was unable to help,ditto T/Fisherman. was intending to tie some of his flies and frame them, any help you may be able to give in this would be much appreciated, Bob was a true great,and i learned a lot from his articles in T/F.

regards Jimmy.

Even though I hadn't met Bob as I can always remember The Guy with The Pipe I Subscribed to Trout Fisherman & Trout & Salmon for many years from The 80s until 2001 which featured many of his articles.
Even though I've had many clean outs I still have all The Trout Fisherman Magazines & some Trout & Salmon with Salmon Fly Patterns.
RIP BOB

Jimmy.
Perhaps I can help with some Patterns you need if they are in any of The Magazines as they to are in my Shed.
Cheers.
Brian

Hi Brian,the T/F magazines in the decade 1980/1990 are where i would expect to find the articles that Bob did for the Benson & Hedges competition. As you probably know this was a 6 monthly competition,starting each year in October till the April of the following year.In 1990/91 the Sponsorship shifted to Partridge of Redditch. I was lucky enough to win the comp: in 1992. The" man with the pipe" had,by that time,left T/F as Her Majesty's government clamped down on sponsorship by tobacco companies in all forms of sport.!! Any help you could give me would great.!! If only the the tying instructions for the flies are available to you,i could take it from there.!! Thanks for your reply, and Regards.

Jimmy.

Hello Jimmy, just picked this up. I have probably 95% of Bobs flies, some others I did sell which were big marabou lures with lead shot heads I had no use for. Hopefully they've caught some pike by now!. Like Brian I have quite a few TF articles and these belonged to Bob. I've not looked through them yet but guess many are issues that he contributed to so what your looking for might be there, maybe not. I'd need to have a look. Were there any flies in particular you were looking for?
Your welcome you view the flies and the magazines etc by arrangement no problem. I live in Nottingham. Bob did create some unpublished works he entitled 'Chats on angling', also an interview on disc he got made with another fly fishing legend since passed on. I have these and many boxes of the discs of his flies and written work as well. Rgds Jim.

Hi Jim, thanks for your reply. ! What i am aiming for is a dozen or so of the flies he devised for the Benson&Hedges competition,or any Winged wetflies he devised? i know his output was prodigious,so,any of the recipes for those type of flies would be all that i need. This "little" project was started about 4 years ago ,and i thought,oh,no,! surely he can't be forgotten,so when John p.m'd me and alerted me to your post here,it made my day.!!!: Thanks again for your reply,and if you can be of any assistance to me,please drop me a p.m.


Regards Jimmy.

Hi Jim, (jlanders), been browsing through the site and came across your pics posted on an earlier set of threads. That is certainly an impressive collection you have there.!! I would send you a P.M. but don't know how to,or even if i am allowed to do so.? Would love to view Bobs flies,and it would be no great hardship for me as i live in Derby,to go over to Nottingham to see them.


Best Regards Jimmy.
