The reports from out west is that there is a lot of water in the rivers, so I thought I’d tie up some intruder-style to bring with me in case I need something bigger than small tubes and doubles. All of these are on 25mm waddington shanks with #4 Partridge hooks

Was inspired from a picture on facebook to do this one. I have a lot of BC on hook and tube from earlier, but a longer variant like this was not there! Tried to tie in the wing as sparsely as possible to get that long flowing feel of it in the water.
So, it has been quiet here for a while, but it has its reasons: I’ve had a injury that made me not prioritize tying and fishing for a while. Not that I haven’t tied flies, I just haven’t pushed things here on the blog for a while. Everything is getting better now, and salmon & trout season is upon us, so I’ll keep you posted over summer with some pics!
In the meantime, some pics of recent ties:
