I found a fly the other day when i was out fishing, it was a cdc shuttlecock. The strange thing was it was tied to a length of red coloured tippet. First iv seen this. Does anyone use red tippet? If so, what is the reason?
Thanks Arkle, this forum is full of great people who go out their way to help you out. Top class. I was thinking about watching youtube to get the basics, il look up those you have suggested. If i get going i will speak to some of the members i know on here about the guild (y) cheers
Thanks, i usually fish size 10-16 flys for stillwater trout. Im not wanting to spend a fortune as its just to try tying a few drys or emergers & to fix the flys iv bought that are chewed :LOL: but dont want to buy cheap rubbish either if that makes sense.
Cheers Jim i will be back up in the spring when the buzzers start, was a cracking big brown just gutted i couldnt land it but it was off after a few seconds but came to the surface & we got a good look at it. Beautiful golden colour. Plenty olive flys on the water but only seen maybe 4 or 5 fish...
