Got a phone call today from friends fishing Melvin, the peach and coral pseudo flies worked miracles,so hopefully they will be field tested on Mask next week, so back to the studio to dye up more Pseudo flourecsent sunburst
Messing around with sedge patterns tonight
cax you are right you do not need to high grade capes,I use Whitings saddles for all my mayfly patterns and they have never let me Don yet,
I will put on the cdc Wulff I did over the Christmas, and a few new patterns that are being field tested by Whitings farm
My name is Lawrence and i decided that it was time to upgrade my account.
With the beginning of the new year brings new opportunities so i look forward to further posts of my materials and flies
During last year we field tested some traditional Irish patterns with cdc incorporated into them.
The results were fantastic, here is a few we tried on the loughs with great results.
This is just a small selection we tied up.
Last month on Mask quite a few fish were taken on a new pattern i designed, the Mosely Gosling, and the gold Gosling.
But the one pattern that outfished all the patterns was the new sunburst Pseudo dabbler.
Pseudo hackle re dyed, 8 fish to the boat using this one.
The materials are as follows
Tail. Sunburst pheasant tail
Body. Bleached squirrel dyed sunburst
Body hackle sumburst saddle
Under wing . bleached and dyed french partridge
Over wing. Bleached and dyed picric Olive french partridge.
I had a customer over here for a weeks fly tying tuition and fishing, had a brilliant week.
We tied up loads of new patterns and i even managed to get him to catch a few fish as well.
These are the Patterns, some of them using the dyed Pseudo hackle.
It,s been a while since i was on the forum,been busy with tying exams and doing workshops around Ireland.
Managed to get behind the vice in the studio at last this weekend to finish off the new patterns for customers coming over to fish Currane and Inagh.
The Pseudo hackle is a brilliant...
Been messing around tying up a few dabblers to head off to the states next week and a few for the shop
