    Kites Imperial.

    Nice tying for a rusty. (y) All my Kites are done with heron for the body. I like using heron so much all other olive patterns have heron for the body, I just change the the thread and rib with different colours of fine wire. 😉 My go to nymph is a grey nymph, again with heron for the body.

    Still doin' the SI, still tinkering with me tackle! Next query ...

    Most likely the'll have a mono core. If you don't want to needle knot then try a nail knot or put a loop in the fly line itself. Try youtube for instructions. You just beat me to the post Jim.

    Moral dilemma with COVID

    I think it's irresponsible. Okay they have an economical dilemma just like pubs, hairdresser etc and there is financial help out there (according to the Government). So! Are they going to pay any fines that their punters might get for non essential travel? How many of their punters might die due...

    Sawyers pheasant tail nymph

    Sawyer's way (well nearly): Use copper wire as thread, build up thorax and take wire down hook shank, catch in 3 pt fibres for tail, the catch in 2 or 3 more pt fibres by their tips. Then you wrap the pt fibres round the wire (be careful so as not to break the pt fibres). Use hackle pliers to...

    The first fish you ever caught

    Or last fishing trip. :eek: I started fishing when 9, an uncle left tackle for me and my older brother, he had all the best and hated me going with him. Caught squat in that first year. However, my dad bought me a 7ft solid fibreglass rod (Milbro) and a Daiwa 7270A reel, 4lb line. Fished Lees...

    Sea anglers' coloured mono

    Tenkara use something similar though of stiffer mono. Yes trout do have good colour vision apparently. Just as long as you have enough tippet added before the flies. Braided loops are now frowned upon due to their hinging effect. Mono needled or nail knotted with perfection loop on the end is...
