Amazing to think the trout years drawing to a close here! Minds on streamers and big bruisers.

Nice one Colin, Speaking of streams we haven't been to the Helmsdale yet.

Cheers,

Not put anything up for a while. This was purely for the tying challenge. An Aly's Shrimp on a size 20 treble. No blood was shed in the tying of this fly!

Brian,

I don't even own a phone, and am no expert but I understand you have to turn the phone sideways to get a vertical pic.

 

Try giving it another shot and post it. Nice fly btw !

Piker those are sweet ties! Sand eels I take it? They look like great glass minnow imitations

Thanks guys. I'll be using them as Sandeel imitations yes.

Im using angel hair in ice blue and ice chartreuse for some tails. With cyrstal flash in there too. Then some clear pearl mylar over the shank portion and resin over that. These are about 3 to 4 inch long and im going to do some shorter darker ones as a general fry/fish thing.

Out tonight, and think caddis flies will be on the menu. Most bases covered already but the Silver Invicta is always a good option for the pupa on the lochs. I lost my last one last time so these unusually will be going into my box.
