  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
