(4th equal) Chris McAllister "Turra" and Jeroen Glen "Dutchfly"
(3rd) John Brown "jbb"

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

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:

It was illuminating judging the salmon fly section  :z5  I have one or two small observations which I'd like to make, these are in no way a criticism of any one tyer as the tying was all to a very good standard  :z16

1. Remember the principal knot employed by salmon fishers for attaching a conventional salmon fly to a cast/leader remains the double turle/turl knot. On many of the flies there simply wasn't the space to tie one which cost marks from me - I'm harsh, I know  :cool:

2. A salmon fly should not only be a work of art but it should also be 'hardy'. By that I mean the wing or materials simply should not seperate from the body at all. One or two entrants again lost points as the wings came loose with the gentlest of tugs, those wings would come out in normal use on the 1st cast.

I'm looking forward to the next round  :z9

Absolutley

the quality is really high, i can also tell you there is very little in it as regards overall points. Given the flies are marked out of 120 most of the flies had between 1 and 5 marks between them.
So its all to play for.

Some really good trout entries so far too. :wink:

Hi folks

Yes, all the entries are in and we will try to get the results sorted out for you as soon as possible.

A few folk have mentioned that they would like to get a "better look" at the flies .......... so I have tried to get some photos done for you today.

I am going to post the photos in the fly tying section, with a thread for each person's flies. Although some of you have sent me some tying details for the flies, I think I'll leave you to add these details below your flies yourselves, which will hopefully produce some Q&A for you  :cool:

There are some wonderful flies here ......... Well done  :z14

Best wishes
