  1. You're done? Sheesh, I just narrowed my choices down to two patterns and ordered the materials today...
  2. Guess I should of checked my mail before I posted I was done...beings that I just got my summer-run flies...I'm in love

    Well anyways mine will be in the mail here shortly

  3. 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.

  7. Wow Mike - sweet looking fly.
  8. 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?


    PS: Nice fly, Mike.
  9. Glad you like'em Stu...

  10. 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.
  11. I think I'm tying Speyman's Waddington Prawn. It was a toss up between that and a Jock Scott... :rofl: :rofl:
  12. i finished mine up just a minute ago... its a black ghost variation. I think it should catch fish
  13. mine are in the mail
  14. I tied 5.75 of 6 last night and ran out of estaz to finish the last one. I ordered more. Hopefully it will be here by Saturday and I can get it in the mail Saturday or Tuesday.
