Default Re: What have you been tying today?

To be honest I'v been a bit embarrassed by the sloppy way I've been finishing some of my flies and now some of the guys want to buy a few I'm not about to send them with messy untidy heads, etc. Okay for me-not for my friends, Also getting practise on salmon/steelhead patterns as I've done a few just to get the idea' but will soon have to order new hooks-got a bulk set last year, but have used most of them on pike flies and trout zonkers. Tied up two dozen dry and wet flies last night for a friend in Lincolnshire and will stock up on anything I need for the Streamer/Wet Fly Tie-Along. Hey, Ard-is that stuff you ordered from Steve Cooper at Cookshill then?. He does probably the best natural materials I've ever ordered and quite reasonable prices who I met once at a fdg meeting here in Altrincham.
