    Hi Folks,

    Thought I might introduce myself with a couple of pics, I do a fair bit of posting on your sister forum here in the UK. I have had a look around and you folks sure are lucky with the variety of fishing you have, I am extremley envious. Anyway here are some of the flies we use in the UK.

    Salmon


    Rainbow/Brown Trout


    Grayling


    Hope you enjoy the pics and I will be sure to drop in again.

    The first fly really catches my eye. NICE WORK!
    As long as I get a bite, I don't want to leave!

    nowhere near as nice or complex as some of the ties I am seeing shown on this thread, but here are a few flies I have been tying up to get ready for the upcoming damsel hatch at one of our local trout lakes

    Welcome Lindsay
    The salmon fly is a beauty and the photo is first class, well done.

    As has already been said, Simmo, that salmon fly is gorgeous! Looks like deerhair, krystal flash, and JC eyes, but what sort of feather provided the hackle collar?

    As far as what I've been tying, I was inspired to tie a soft hackle for the brookie swap, so here are my first three flies. Would have rather used orange beads for the head, but my orange beads are doing their best Steve Mcqueen impression and have pulled the Great Escape.

    is that wood duck or teal?
    Pearl flash dubbbing?
    I like em', they look kind of like a bird's nest variety.

    Hello Darwin, You have probably seen it on the sister site, it is a great fly it was invented by the Spey Ghillie who swears by it it's called a Kinermony Killer.

    Having yet to catch a salmon I am probably not the best advert for this fly but to be fair I have not fished it. After an hour salmon fishing I am so bored I find myself reaching for my trout kit

    I've been on a bit of a soft-hackle kick lately inspired by those first three...
    The hackle and tail on the ones shown above are hungarian partridge, and the body is the Hare's Ear w/ flash (I can't remember if it's Hareline or Orvis, though I know I picked it up at the local Orvis... I'll try to remember to check later). From what I've been told, brookies can be fans of flashy stuff so I figured I'd use that particular dubbing, plus the greens in it matched the green beadhead. I've also been tying natural-colored pheasant tails with beadheads and soft-hackles and the local stockers seem to enjoy them...

    I'm really loving these soft-hackles, but I'm quickly running out of partridge... Gonna have to bite the bullet and pick up a full skin soon... More photos to come!
