    Default A few patterns for Argentina

    Spent the day doing up a few patterns for a friend of mine who is going to Argentina
    Hook size 6 single salmon, what i do is put a cone head on it then run lead wire down the hook. to keep the cone head and wire fixed securely i put a drop of resin into the cone head and hey presto it is all glued in and will not move, plus it gives a bit more weight to the fly

    Tangerine dream


    yellow wing


    polar

    Nice flies and neat idea with the conehead/lead/resin on the single salmon hooks.

    Very cool! Probably excellent for Steelhead too!

    I suspect that they will be successful.

    Here's an obtuse question for you (it's early in the morning and I'm not fully with the program yet........)

    What's the origin of the term fortnight?

    I think it refers to a two week period. Is is a contraction of fourteen nights?

    Pocono

    Pocono
    you are right, it means 2 weeks,apparently it goes back to the 12 century meaning 14 nights in olde English. i never thought of it before. It is strange as you have now started me on a path to look at some of our sayings and try to find the origins of them.
    This could be a good laugh for the forum to get the guys and Gals to come forward with unusual words and their origins.
    The 2 best sayings over here in Ireland are:

    Buck eejit

    Gnaw ugly


    see if you can figure out what these mean

    Laurie, Those are beautiful flies, however, if I may propose, tying one like your "Polar" in the more subdued colors of the prevalent, native, sub-surface food organism, the Pancora, might be absolutely killer.

    Laurie, awesome flies as usual, I'm sure the Argentinian trout will love them. I can see polar gathering some interest from the steelhead in my area as well...

    Wow S&S that thing is ugly, might call for a sw hook to match its size!
