Anybody fancy a winter fly tying competition for a bit of fun? I have a basic idea in my head  :?:  

Based around a stillwater fly in December, a river fly in January and a salmon/sea trout one in February  :cool:  

I'll put up a few wee prizes to add to the fun  :idea:

Best wishes

OK Guys

Hamish, Mike and myself are going to judge the flies this year.
So there will be 3 sets of points awarded and we will add them together to get scores.

You will be judged on

Tying skill
Originality
Proportion
Fishiness (how effective the fly is likely to be in its intended purpose)

There will be one winner each month and over the 3 months the points total for each entant will be added together to find the overall winner.

You can drop the flies off at Haddo or you can send me a PM and i'll give you an address to post them to.


THE FLY FOR DECEMBER WILL BE A STILLWATER TROUT FLY

You have until the 15th of January to send us the flies for round 1.

Get tying and have fun :z16

Thanks Sandy  :z16  
My apologies for the delay with a reply folks  :oops:

The prize each month will be a boat for the day on Haddo and for those who live too far away I'll find something "fishing tackle" as an alternative  :wink:

The prize for the overall winner will be a fly rod  :cool:

Please send two examples of your fly when entering the competition .......... and Hamish had a grand idea, we'll put all the entries together at the end of the competition and run an auction on the forum for them and the money raised from this will be donated to The Wild Trout Trust  :cool:

Best wishes

Would make sense for it to be forum members only Colin ...... Your Dad could always register  :wink:

If he can't register for any reason .... twist my arm .... and I'll make it for "Forum members only and Colin's Dad"  :z4   :z4   :z4

The fly for December, is that a winter stillwater trout fly or an allround fly?

Thanks, Jay
