Really like seeing your work posted, Tom. Excellent dressing. Love the upright wings of late.

Marvelous dressing Tom. It would be fun to take this one for a swim.

I like that a lot. Might well tie a couple and take them down the Clyde where they will feel very much at home.

You are on a role Tom. Nice little winged wets lately.

Welcome Bobfly! Thanks for joining. Hope you enjoy our company and take time to look through the old posts. A lot of information here.
I hate it when I think I'm buying organic vegetables, and when I get home I discover they are just regular donuts.

I think you've officially turned the corner with your "winging issues".......all of late have been splendid - keep up the good work!

Soft and wet - the only way....

Helllo folks, thanks for your welcomes.
I will not be known on here. I live in Scotland and use "Bobfly " since I usually fish two flies on the cast on hill lochs and most of the wild browns come to the bobfly!
I usually use soft hackled flies and/or dries.
