    Default Given up tricky ties....

    I think I must be naturally lazy... Iíve come to realise I like simple, quick ties that look like nuffin and cover everything...
    So, getting ready for the new season...



    Probably 3 or 4 dry patterns to tie up and that should cover it

    Sit still and watch the river, it's all a part of fishing, oh and never trust a man in sandals.

    Iím not brave enough to fish with just two patterns Stephen.... when my presentation goes to hell I need to be able to change and blame the fly rather than my own ineptitude...

    The bodies are just turkey biots, I use them loads, you can get them in a huge range of colours.... but mostly I use drab browns and olives

    I thought they were, I have some, but I canít seem to master them yet.

    It all looks so easy when I watch Davie McPhail.
