Hello all

Back at the vise after a hiatus and of course I logged in here for inspiration, knowledge and interaction. Some attempts of starting to fill the boxes. Nothing new under the sun and still a bit rusty :-)

Marvelous set of flies Martin. I am delighted you’ve tried the POP fly. It is cool that this will get fished in Europe at some point. Love it!

What hook is the black pennel tied on? Nice iron.

Thanks Ray, I'll keep you posted on the POP flies. The pennel is tied on Kamasan B170 size 12

Martin your Rusty ties look pretty damn good M8 ;)
I especially like the last two. Embarrassed to admit although I love the look of your Tups and others I've seen, it's a pattern I've never tied nor fished :P
Might have to remedy that! I've got some beautiful Tups dub generously sent to me by Ray about 50years ago, if my timekeeping is correct? :?

Don't think the layoff did your tying any harm, Martin. Still clean and crisp with a come hither look for the trouts.
Please stay and play with us a while ... perhaps some photos of your fishing trips during the interim?

Thank Bill, and very nice talking to you again. Hope you are well.

I will for sure share some fishing pics! Actually some will be present in Fulling Mills US 2019 Catalog :)

;) Thanks!

For the Tups dub I think Ray uses the same receipt as me from Mike Valla´s catskill book

Your fly patterns look great!

Someone sent me some hot orange golden pheasant tippets which I haven't used. Your Black Pennel is the first time I have actually seen them used. I was going to use them on Royal Trudes, but I might have to try your soft hackle pattern too.

Martin, first time I have seen a Greenwell's with a black head. I think I may actually prefer it.
I hate it when I think I'm buying organic vegetables, and when I get home I discover they are just regular donuts.
