    Amazing tying rich just in time for the popular sea trout time.

    I bet it feels like you're tying onto an anchor now... Nicely done though, I like it.
    There's more to life than just fishing....but I ignore them.

    Yes, just a bit. Need to buy some more sizes of these hooks.

    Check out the Kamasan B800's, great hooks for sea trout, that's what I tie the majority of mine on.

    I've got some of those, will have to blow the dust off them. I just liked the look of those salmon singles.

    Yep I agree, there's something about a fly tied on a salmon hook that's very easy on the eye. I do have some tied on the old Partridge Salar hooks, these were silver so I didn't need to tie in a body for Medicines & Silver Stoat's-(tails omitted)

    Just found some #12 kamasan doubles in the drawer also, and #8 B175's. Might as well use those up too. Maybe have to tie some Dunkeld's up. 🤔

    Don't forget a few Pennells on those doubles, leave the tails out...
