I have added a new section to flyhooks.org: Books
I have tried to gather all the books I have on hooks, and books that covers hooks for specific purposes in parts of the book. I’m always on the lookout for more information, so drop me a line if you have any information about more books!
Sunturnbrew 4th edition: the last 3 years I have sat down at winter solstice and opened up a bottle of Nøgne Ø, Sunturnbrew. This year the inspiration led to a dee-style, double-black wing pattern. Tied on a #1/0 Long Dee from Gaelic Supreme.
There is a new section on flyhooks.org: http://flyhooks.org/cards – a place where I’ll gather hook cards and pictures of them as I get my hands on them.
If you have cards, or pictures of cards: please contact me!
Jock Scott is one of those patterns that made me want to tie classics in the first place, and it is still one of those patterns that catch my eye whenever I see it.
Hope to get together a side in my box with JS this winter for the fishing season next year, got to start early!
