    second could any of you provide some tips on working with sculpin wool

     

    all the best

  3. hi all

     

    the next fly for hairwing box

     

    i tied this for the first time this summer

     

    it got me my first fish of the season off my local river

     

    it is tied on a size 10 low water silver double

     

    it was also on this size that my brother lost a big fish in russia this summer ( he had 2 15lbers and this one was a lot bigger- unluckly to be using small fly at the time)

     

    i am going to tie this also in orange and gold

     

    anyway hope you all like it

     

    all the best

  4. hi all

     

    another one for the hair wing box

     

    this i belive was first tied by warren duncan

     

    when deciding on a green fly for the box i flipped a coin between this and another fly called galway green.

     

    no point in having 2 green flies of same construction in the box

     

    its tied on a size 6 not sure type of hook

     

    hope you all like it

     

    all the best

    john
