I have a box at the back of my fly-tying den that I put old flies and ones that have seen better days in. Had a look at it to get some hooks and was surprised at the number of flies that I no longer use. Flies like Greenwell glory/partridge and orange/gold and Cinnamon and gold./silver butcher etc. Wonder why they have gone out of fashion.
Well if we do get to go out that will be great. I personally have got a day organised not too far from where I live but in a remote location and have inflated the float tube and got the rest of my stuff ready just in case we get the nod later next week. Here’s hoping we get to go out and tight lines to all if we do. Here’s hoping.

Stay safe,

Nice work Sandy  :z16
I feel that she is the only one that is sincere in her approach. I will be out when allowed as I have very few seasons left so why waste time.

Fly Tying / Getting ready for summer
« Last post by Sandy Nelson on May 23, 2020, 07:32:19 AM »
I hit the vice yesterday for a change in routine and started to fill the summer box.
Having lost all our decent daytime hatches to the lockdown, afternoons  Once we get out will be small stuff, terrestrials and small dark olives.

So keeping things simple and based around Paul Procters APT pattern because it works.

Size 18 Small black thing with Highland Peat scruffy dubbing body

Next up an size 18 Aphid using the Caddis green scruffy dubbing body.

And a size 14 cow dung fly using the scruffy buzzer scruffy dubbing

Any decent fish found feeding during the day should accept one or the other of these, with maybe a beetle or two up my sleeve as well :z18

Hello gentlemen and ladies of course.

I am looking to buy a Lawrence Waldron's LAW fly-tying vise.

If anyone knows of one for sale or if someone is thinking of retiring from fly tying.

I would happily pay fair market price for one.

Thank you for your consideration Louis.
