    Hi Laurie,
    I hope your doing well and on the mend
    Great selection of flies! very nicely done I do have to ask about the WILKINSON STIMULATOR, under what conditions would you use a fly of this colour?
    I have used purple for wet flies but never dry.

    All the best to you and thanks!

    hi Darwin
    the wilkinson stimulator is used mainly as a seatrout fly, it is pulled through the wave on the loughs to create a wake, it is also good when fished on a sinking line pulled underwater as fast as you can, it really induces a take.
    I am currently working on some flourescent stimulators for lough Mask an Lough Melvin

    Default One more in the Bomber family

    It's called a Burdock. Looks like one, no? Salar likes it.

    Cheers Laurie,
    Maybe I should try a small version on the trout and see how they react! Fluorescent, now that is an interesting spin to try.
    Many thanks


    Gary,
    Nice collection of bombers you have there.

    Hi Guys some great bomber patterns, i have tied a few up to try out next week on our salmon river. Today i am going to try out some new depthcharge patterns, quilled bodies and wire bodies,we tried these out 2 weeks ago with amazing results. the best pattern was the suspended buzzer the trout just loved them , the quills are from a mallard wing quill stripped and dyed red tailled depth charge orange tailled depth charge claret wire bodied depth charge suspender buzzer this is what it looks like in the water

    hope you enjoy them

    Those are very nice, and unusual flies. I think you did a fantastic job on them.
    As long as I get a bite, I don't want to leave!

    Tied some size 12 GRHE today, the browns have been enjoying them "almost" as much as I have.

    I was going fly fishing until my wife suggested it, now I can't tell who is outsmarting who!

    Being "one with nature" requires a knowledge of what animals are living nearby and a weapon of sufficient magnitude to give you at minimum an equal chance of survival. No one has an invisible aura that animals can detect and sense your good intentions.

    I was recently introduced to these during a local fly swap. He called them "Mini Hoppers" but they are basically just Bubble Caddis with rubber legs.

    I tied these up for a small spring creek trip tomorrow.
