  1. or for a real chalange try do a cobra with a flared hood
  2. It is very simple. The heavier the line the less distance you can cast with it but you can cast heavier things, closer in with more accuracy but the lighter the line the more you can cast and be accurate with it but you will find fishing closer in more difficult. You could theroretically cast a 10 wt line on a 2 wt rod you just couldn't use more than 10 feet, if that. I use a 7 wt fast sinker on a light 6 wt rod and it is fine with it. A fast sinker is about 1 wt heavier in preformance than a similar weight floating. You won't be shot for using a sightly out of balance set up. You can often do it to suit the scenario you are fishing. The same goes for rod length. Hope that helps, Jason.
  3. To steal (sorry copy) those photos just get up the page and have microsoft word in the same window ie. side by side. Then just highlight the chosen item and while holding down the left click button drag it on to the word file and then you can play with it all you want. All criticism welcome, Jason.
  4. Nice Fly, Looks good it would certinaly catch fish. Did you use a black bin liner for the wing case? If you go on to the begginers corner you you find very helpful people and people starting off just like you. Happy Tying, Jason.
  5. Lovely, what are the hackles? Jason.
  6. I went fishing for salmon for the second time in my life and I got a bite (3 taps) I waited for 4 seconds then lifted slowly but nothing was attached to the line . All comments and help welcome, Jason.
  7. A few flies, 1 inch unweighted silver stoats, black n' green and ice maiden tube flies. And 2 inch heavily weighted ,, ,, ,, ,, ,, ,, ,, ,,. All comments welcome, Jason.
  8. Yes Sherri I do fox hunt. This year has been good for the foxes because they were extra cunning and he honds were extera lazy this yearbut I has been all good. Just like a days fishing there is never a bad days hunting just some are better than others. The hunting season finishes on the 15 of march and the fishing season starts on the 10th :yahoo: Happy tying, Jason.
  9. Oh yeh don't bother with the body hair. It is to long and hard for dubbing and two short for every thing else. Jason.
  10. See the lovely whiskers on the fly. Well that is dyed horse tail. It is much more useful than wild boar as it can be white and dyed easily for making the pot bellied pig salmon flies. Jason. P.S. Hows it over there in America because Ireland has had a beautiful fox hunting season which closes up in 2 weeks and then starts the salmon and trout fishing (lucky me!!!! :headbang: :yahoo: )
  11. I do A bit of rock climbing but the fox hunting season is the opposite of the fishing season so I am always doing something. The fox hunting is over on the 15th of March and the fishing starts on the 10th. Lucky Me!!!!! Jason.
  12. The salmon season on the River.Slaney is about to open (10/3/08). I get to start my first salmon season in 1 week. Jason.
  13. I have been tying for 2 years this easter and I am all ready churning out stuff like this. Happy tying, Jason.
  14. Here is one of my first bombetr flies. I had no calf tail so I used foam and two hackles. Comments welcome, Jason.
  15. Very good. You will be better than any of us in no time if you keep it up. I have sent a picture of a legless pheasant tail nymph with a glo-brite green body. The proportions are perfect. There your reference. Happy tying, Jason.
