Fished Rutland on Saturday had my best day ever plenty of fish fo the boat.  Mostly to buzzers with some coming to a di3 washing line twiddled back with cormorants.  Great day . 

 

Hows everyone else got on big or small water so far ?.

Fished a little two acre lochen at Drumlanrig Friday. Had the place to myself, two rainbows about 2/12lb each and lost a couple of others. Until we can travel in Scotland I can’t get to the bigger waters I like.

Jumping in... any of you tie your own flies?  I still have a few bits and pieces lying around including two full rotating fly vices. In addition I shoot a fair few squirrels and such a waste to throw some good tails away.   PM me if your interested and I can list it all for you. Dave up at Kelton has had a large proportion of it already.  Some free, some just the postage and some we can barter(vices).

Had an enquiry on the bits and pieces so put them all together and taken some photos.

The photo of the containers, left to right. The large container is chock full of every fur and hair you can think off, some you would not even recognise.

The photo next to that along is full of body tinsels all different colours.

The next photo along is full of hare fur and similar for body construction and also some latge coils of soft material which is great agin for bodies.

The tin box is full of wings and feathers largely woodcock and partridge but lots of individual winging material as well.

To be fair to all comers I am happy to post one of each . I don't know the postage but can soon find that out.

I have spent some 65years fly dressing and now I don't fish anymore I have no need for flies so all this stuff must go and it would be great if some beginner could make use of it.  

The large box of fur/hair would probably cost over £50 to put together if not more.

PS all of this has been stored with moth killer in the boxes but I still advise anyone taking them to put them in the freezer for a few days which will ensure non have been transferred.

A generous offer indeed, and one I'd be itching to take up if I hadn't got a reciprocal tying / loading arrangement with a buddy.

I'm yet to score with the trout this year, but have had several Pike to the fly.

Looking good for the season though with a 4 day trip to the Northern Lochs of Scotland now booked, and days on several chalkstreams/rivers booked including the Wensum, Itchen, Avon and Wylye. 

Happy times ahead I think 😃

Fished grafham from the bank Saturday.  All the North shore holding fish . Had over 30 between 5 of us . I had another double hook up one home tied hare ear variants.  Almost all fish falling to hare ears and diawl bachs great day.  Takes were arm wrenching just letting nymphs drift round in the breeze.thats what fly fishing is all about .
