    Hends Dropper Rollers

    Wanted for a mate, who likes these things. He's tried various other solutions and doesn't want anything other than the original Hends product, which I understand is no longer produced. Personally, I hate the things but he seems to get on well with 'em so if you have a packet or two lurking...

    Partridge Split Cane

    I'm very pleased with a new acquisition - a Partridge split cane which didn't cost very much but is in very nice condition and came in a nice presentation box. :cool: It's a 6' 6" two-piece rated for a #4 line and seems happy coping with that although I tried a 3 wt today and it handles that...

    Neat Ant

    Some time ago, there was a thread on how to tie this pattern on the Step By Step page and posters reported difficulty in sourcing the correct foam material. I managed to track it down last week in Montana and have some surplus material if anyone wants to try a piece. Details on the other thread...

    Car Boot Sale

    On child-minding duties last weekend with three grand-daughters who wanted to rummage around a local car-boot sale. One of the kids was having a look at a big pile of teddies when I spotted this bear, who, on closer inspection, was made of hare body fur. For the massive outlay of 10p, I now have...

    Anyone put a name to this?

    A good friend gave me this dressing for lough seatrout - he said it was a very old Irish pattern but couldn't remember its name. Anyone help? I tied one up according to his instructions and I think it might work well on the point. Kamasan B170 #12 Apple green floss silk body Sparse black...

    Fly Tying Kits

    Not having a go at anyone, but yet again we have a question on the Fly Tying Forum about 'What Fly Tying Kit Should I Buy?' It seems that this comes up at least once a month and no doubt as winter arrives it will become even more frequent. Much as garyj has done with the infamous 'Strike...

    Well, lads, just got back from a 3 week trip to Montana and Idaho. It was HOT, temperatures in the 90s F (+30C), rivers low and getting lower which made things tough as the trip progressed. However, my mate Mark and I caught fish everywhere we went and didn't blank anywhere, which I reckon was...

    Katie Ross

    Someone gave me a couple of old Trout & Salmon mags recently and I found a nice looking pattern by Stan Headley called the Katie Ross. Maybe it's been on here before, it seems an obvious variation of two very successful flies. I think it looks the biz, will give it a swim on my next outing to...

    Anorexic Silver Daddy

    Been fiddling around this morning with a few patterns on some nice nickel silver hooks (Kamasan B170N) and it occurred to me that you don't really need a silver mylar body on a fly to get chewed up by a trout's teeth when the hook itself is already silver. So here's a Silver Daddy tied on the...

    Spare C-clamps

    Anyone know where I can buy a couple of decent C-clamps? I bought some spare vices recently for tuition purposes and while the vices are fine, the clamps appear to be made from Cadbury's finest :)
