  1. Thanks all. The emerger has a thin coat of UV sure resin over it. The Dun pattern has nothing - that is just the natural sheen. ~D
  2. Thanks. The hook is the Partridge Classic Spider.
  3. A favourite bug from this season:
  4. Classic looking flies Ray. They are superb. Interesting use of up and down eyes. Do you have a theory as to which you use when?
  5. feet are not in a dubbing loop.... inserted in thread...I do not know whether I am good translation Bogi, your translantion is fine. Nice looking pattern too
  6. Thanks for the comments. Yes - raffia / swiss-straw for the the bottom flies. Karsten - you too buddy. The shell back for the middle flies is just an olive shell bak stretch. Nothing exotic.
  7. Even with two layers of flat lead, scud and shrimp patterns can be kept nice and slim: Happy new year to you, ~Dave
  8. Mine landed on the doorstep. What a great set of flies - many thanks. My one disppointment was that package had been opened and I was missing a couple of of the flies :ripped: That is really frustrating... not the first time and certainly not the last...perhaps there's a postie over here with good taste...
  9. This is one for the grayling: Get amongst them!
  10. A new addition to the fly pattern database has been submitted by dwiltshire: Pinkie
  11. All tied on a Partridge YK4G.
  12. Don't tell me this set has gone AWOL :wallbash: ... let's hold out for another few days and if these don't show I guess you'll have to move on without me.
  13. A dozen on the desk, one disppeared into the ether :eek: and they'll be posted this week
  14. Great swapping cast guys... still looking in the carpet :wallbash:
  15. #30 Aphid is fine Dave but I think it should incur a size penalty, as size does matter!!! Half a doz aphids each sounds pretty fair to me buddy I just dropped one... cannot find it now
  16. ... and I meant to add: I'll happily photograph all the flies if people would like
  17. Nice to see you in Karsten Now I was thinking about tying a #30 aphid ~ that is unless peeple feel short-changed receiving a small fly :boxed:
  18. Thanks for the invite Josh. Really busy at the moment.... but hey, I'm in. Sounds a great swap. Invite sent to ?????? ( a great potential addition...)
  19. Hook: Partridge YK12ST #20 Thread: Sheer 14/0 grey Abdomen: Hare's mask Lower wing: CDC Upper Wing: Raffine / Swiss straw Thorax: Hare's mask
  20. They can be gone as quickly as they arrive.. worth carrying an imitation though. Cheers
  21. It's that time of year again. The flying ants are showing and, when they blow onto the water, you can expect some exciting sport with some terrestrial imitations: Hook: Varivas 2200BL-B #16 Thread: Sheer 14/0, grey Butt: Pearl tinsel Body: Spectrablend, black / peacock blend Thorax: Squirrel Wing: White CDC If it sinks (or if you make it sink!) watch the leader for takes:
