  2. hi all just in the process of tying a fly i can just about marry goose an gp tail together however i tried goose and busturd and it just aint working. I have subbed busturd with peacock and it is still a tough job just wondering how many of you all use goose? will turkey make things easier? all the best john

  4. Tompa great to see some flies again your tying is excellent i enjoyed the article. i think some times we all run into bad spells just keep fishing and they sort themselves out hope to see more flies all the best john
  5. Inconnu thank you for the comments ill see what i can do for a step by step as for fishing its a fly id only use on lakes as for presentation id fish it two ways for the buzzer hatches id fish it on the top dropper with 2 nymph patterns below. the nymps would be fishing static i.e. naturally like the real buzzer however if i wished to start a faster retrieve id have the movement and translucence of the bibio to attract a trout second if i was just wetfly fishing it would go on the point or middle dropper and retrieved at various speed through the waves waiting for a trout to strike i would like to point out i dont do a lot of fishing on lakes i am no expert on methods on the lakes we are mostly fishing from drifting boats here in ireland hope this helps all the best john
  6. Ray Duckfly is the same as buzzer or chiromid it is the first main insect hatch on the irish lake and starts around mid to end of march and into april it probably got the name duck fly because it emerges around the same time as the first hatches of mallard chicks the trout feed heavly on the assending pupa which just before emergence turn a brilliant orange colour which dissappears after a few seconds. The colour must be like a beacon to the trout. Hence the creation of this pattern hope this helps all the best john
