Only 5 days left.

If you are cutting it fine, i'll allow a couple of extra days if you PM me to say they are on their way.
So far all the entries look really good.
Its going to be very hard :z6 Hopefully 3 opinions will filter out the winners though :z16

Cool, what you going to drink Mike :?:

Last Day today for the first leg.

So if anyone has put flies in the post today, let me know.
Otherwise thats it for the stillwater flies.



Next up will be a SALMON fly. Same rules as before, entries to be in by the 15th of February. Should be good to think about with the season just around the corner :z16

Hi Sandy

I have some flies coming from Peter, probably in a parcel that they couldn't get through my letter box yesterday?

I've got a card to collect a parcel from the post office, but wasn't up to collecting it this morning cause my back has been killing me for a couple of days and walking etc is a tad painful ( so is sitting in this chair for more than a couple of minutes! )

Will get them to you asap

:z5 ROUND ONE RESULTS  :z5

Hi folks

Sandy and myself enjoyed some splendid hospitality at Hamish's residence yesterday evening and I am now in a position to reveal the top five flies from round one:

(5th) John Brown "jbb"
(4th) Chris McAllister "Turra"
(3rd) Irvine Ross "Hares Lug"
(2nd) Derek Howie "derek 365"
(1st) Peter McCallum "rabbitangler"

Well done Peter, as the winner of round one you have won yourself a day's fishing on Haddo .........  :z14

NOW THEN DON'T FORGET THAT ........... all those who entered were awarded points for their flies and these points will obviously count towards your final scores at the end of the three rounds ......... so that you can win the main prize, which is a fly rod  :cool:

ROUND TWO IS UNDERWAY and Sandy has asked you to tie a SALMON fly for this one. The same rules apply as in round one, the prize for the round is once again a day's fishing at Haddo and your entries are to be in by the 15th of February.
SO ....... what are you waiting for?  :z8  get your vice out  :wink:  

I'll try to get some photos of the flies posted on here soon
Best wishes

All the entries were good, especially considering some of you have only just started.
The main points that seem to have gotten raised when we discussed the flies were, some of the flies were overly complicated, some of the varnishing left a lot to be desired and quite a few of the patterns would not quite achieve the desired effect in the water due to either the wrong choice of material or lack of a significant feature.
However although we did come up with different marks individually, the final scores seemed like an accurate reflection on the flies.
What i can say is there is plenty scope for the overall comp to change many times as most of the combined marks were fairly similar.

I thoroughly enjoyed looking at peoples ideas, and i'm looking forward to the next batch.
