Really beautiful flies combining old and new.
The best thing is that they work!
Well done William.

Re: Dark Watchet

Thank you for the kind comments and I think you're all too generous. Hank, it might be a while before something hangs off the pointy end! We're marching off into Autumn as you eye up spring. On a NZ fly tying site, someone posted a Killer Bug. Oh no, that's got me keen. Both William Anderson and Jef...

Re: Woodcock and Fox Flymph

Great flies and photos William. If I picked a favourite, it'd be the last. Woodcock, seal and fox. That shorter shank and stronger hook cry out Pick Me! in There's beautiful gold in your woodcock too. That looks far closer to plover (as already mentioned) than the brown woodcock we buy here.

Re: Deleatidium Flymph

Bill, that is subtle and beautiful for so many reasons. The double stripped hackle technique is a new one to me. Not something I'd have considered on a soft hackle/flymph due to the complexity of getting the job done. I'm presently struggling with 2 hackles on a #8 rabbit lure! Great skills Bill. I...
