Thank's for looking? You must be kidding. Your flies are fantastic. How could any of us not look at them? :cool:


I don't mean to twist your arm up your back but there's a fly swap going on you know? It has a seat reserved for you at the top table. All you need to do is say 'Aye' and you are in, in and in again ;)

Far too kind TBLJS.... Your flies on here are fantastic and an inspiration.

Hi Leigh,

Yes I remember seeing it in the magazine and thinking I have to give it a go! However I think I got the name of the fly incorrect? Apologies if so!

I lost a very big sea trout on a size 8 version last season - it still hurts!!!!!
