    My pattern

    Actually, my dear Mr. Hywel, I will be tying a pattern of my own devising called "le ver du Saint Jean". It is an Atlantic salmon fly cosntructed by lashing a 25cm length of stout, red rope to a 10/0 hook with a length of orange baling twine. Ohoto attached.

    First flies

    Scott Behn's nice brace of Royal Coachman Bucktails arrived today. I guess I'd better decide soon what I'm going to tie! How about some low water Jeannies, Jockies, or Logies?

    Stu

    PS: Nice fly, Mike.

    how bout a green highlander stu?

    i am still trying to decide but it will be a fairly simple atlantic salmon pattern...
    i destroyed the tip of my finger today while releasing a King so i am not sure how it will affect my tying but we'll see.

    D3Smartie's flies (David, what do you call that pattern?) , Mike Doughty's Marabou Shrimps (they almost make me wish for winter -- almost ), and my new EFS 60mm macro lens. Guess I have an excuse to take some pictures!
