  6. Hi Kirk, Thank and to the other guys, for all your comments, i am over the moon with them, Kirk, I shape the crest feathers, by putting them in a bowl of just warm water. for about 30 mins and then place them on a flat surface, i use a thick PVC sheet when wet. and then shape them to how i want them, leave to dry out over night and they stay that shape. hope this helps you, if you need to know more just ask. Dai
  7. Yep, I knew your trout were Sea run Browns, I browsed thru your blog! You tie some beautiful flies BTW! My comment was simply that the flies used can be very similar, even though the species really are not! Sorry for misunderstanding, I will say i do like the look of the sea trout you catch. And thank you very much, for the comments on my tying. Tight lines, Dai.
  8. Cheers, Fine on your sea trout, but ours are brown trout that have run to sea. but have to say, like the look of the ones you fish for.
  9. I have to agree with Panama! I am jealous of your blog. I have my own and hope one day my work is that nice. The mallard flank shrimp is AWESOME and your picture quality is great. Glad I got to check it out. Cheers guys, glad you like my ties and blog, i am really over the moon with your comments.

  11. The season is getting close now here in South Wales, i fish a lot for sewin (sea run browns). and this fly really works here, also for salmon. Tied on a size 6, DEERCREEK double. And these i tied this morning, roll on April. Happy tying guys. Dai.
  12. Have used a number of vise's, and i have a few as well Love my Dyna-king Barracuda, and thought in was the best. But above is a photo of my LAW, and don't think there is another on the market to touch it. Happy tying guys, Dai.
