  1. Spey fly hook: Daichi 2051 body: black floss ribs: embossed and oval tinsel, red floss hackle: black and natural ring neck rump wing: bronze mallard
  2. Thunder and Lightning tag: Silver and Yellow Floss. Tail: Topping, Indian Crow* Butt: Black Ostrich. Body: Black Floss Floss. Rib: Oval Silver* Hackle: Fiery Brown* Throat: Jay.* Wing: Blue, Scarlet and Yellow Goose, Bustard, GP Tail, Bronze Mallard over. Horns: Blue/Yellow Macaw *subbed golden pheasant breast for Fruit Crow, embossed tinsel for Oval, ginger variant for fiery brown hackle and blue Guinea for Jay. tied a Kelson wing of the thunder and lightning. I built the wing tips down for the first time, I’ll be honest, I’m gonna need the fish to convince me they prefer it this way. I found it much trickier to build and doesn’t have the ascetic I like but perhaps that is a lack of practice. I’ll wait till I get some Jay and a better coloured hackle and give this one another go but I think this one will fish.
  3. Thx Rick, that is interesting, I ordered a set of 30colours but that didn’t include white or black, lol

  7. Welcome, I've just gotten into Salmon flies the past few months. Look forward to chatting about these especially
  8. Looks like a great day, glad the fish liked those ties, they looked real fishy to me.
  9. I can’t tie small, 16 and under might as well be brain surgery. the no-hackle dry is also one I can’t seem to get right tho I’ve not spent too much time trying to nail it down
  10. I do enjoy a Squatch thumbs up, thx gents
  11. I tied one of these a few weeks ago, it’s been sitting on by the desk looking more like one to retie everyday. Got some feedback on the FB forum and gave it another attempt. I think this one turned out a little better Rosy Dawn Tag: Flat Gold. Tail: Golden Phesant Crest and Tippet. Butt: Black Ostrich. Body: Rear half Embossed Silver Tinsel, front half Oval gold tinsel, the joint butted with a magenta hackle. Throat: Magenta, then Light Blue. Wing: Two tippets veiled with married strands of Yellow, Scarlet, and Blue Swan, Golden Pheasant tail, a Topping over. Sides: Jungle Cock. Horns: Blue/Yellow Macaw
  12. Sorry gents, wasn’t sure if this one was a go, I’ll get them on the way to you by end of this week.
  13. Good note, I’ve gone back and added it to the last few. I always appreciate that you provide the recipe on your ties, should have thought to do this.
