Every year I dressed this selection of flies for a good friend of mine. Always the same flies tied on low water slamon hooks in sizes 8 and 10. He always used to start fishing as the sun was setting, always the same pool and always 3 times down the pool and then home. He used to catch his fair share of fish from that pool his best went just over 10lbs. his only double figure sewin in over 35years of fishing.

I shall miss him next season.IMG_E1668.JPG

Nice set of flies, your friend was lucky to have you as his friend. Sounds like that pool will always remind you of him.

If I had to pick a single one out of them as an absolute banker it would be your Haslam's. The thing is though I could be stood in my own river in the pitch dark with all of them in pocket and just pull any one put at random. Throw it into my pool and be supremely confident of a fish 😎

Hi all, thanks for all the kind words.
I will post the dressing of each fly later.

btw, I'm seeing a few posts with ADVERTISING at the bottom as in T7's post above, just curious.

I do like some of the traditional patterns on small doubles- Blue Charm works well on the Dee. Munro Killer. Willie Gunn, Thunder & Lightning and Garry Dog have brought me salmon on the Elwy.
All with black bodies, ribbed silver or gold.🤔
