A few for our toothy friends

Morning gents,

I've been playing around with some new materials and new (to me) tying techniques as I plan to have a bash at some pike fishing when I'm next back in sunny Caledonia. All suggestions/critism will be very much appreciated as this is something I don't have much experience with.

Cheers David  :z16

No not yet I'm currently in Brunei with work. They will get a throw when I'm back mid July.

Funny you mention the mouse as I've had a deep set hatred of spinning deer hair and always left muddlers and the like to my dad Eddie (he's in here) but finally decided to have a proper bash at it 👍

Nice shape on the flies!  If you think spinning deer hair is a pain try marabou or flashabou 🤣

Excellent looking flies Steven, I'm sure they will do the business with Esox
