    Default Invicta

    Sorry, but admin has asked me which account I'd like to keep. So I am having to let braveheart go and since I will no longer have control over my sbs's I have no choice but to delete them.
    However these sbs's and many more are available, free, on ukflydressing and the wild fishing forums.

    Nice fly fella. Think it is time to turn your hand to some, step by steps for some easy peasy dries; that ham fisted buggers like me can plagiarise.

    Beautifully done! A great fly from a Great Man. James Ogden was a brilliant inventor. As well as the Invicta he invented the first flies tied deliberately to "float"; a creel to sit on whilst fishing so the angler stayed low; a folding net that never tangled and the first fly rod of 8ft (at the time an 11 footer was thought of as "short"). His skills led to the very first "Dry Fly Only" rule for an entire fishery...
