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!
Today a rather big freestyle session on a #5/0 Harrison Bartleet Long Dee hook. Waiting for a project that requires some very long wings, so I thought I’d spend the Sunday on some practice. Keeping the wing set high and with quite dark tones in the body and wing will contrast well with the grey heron hackle.

Working through some different dee patterns with variations to fill up the box for next years season.
A version of Shannon number 12 from William Blacker, tied in hand on a Lars Møller #4/0 2xl hook.
This year will be a lot about Blacker: a 3-book edition about his life and tying will be published in the not-too-distant-future. Starting up the tying season with some more tying in hand, and exploring the wing and thoughts from Blacker when it comes to flydesign.
I added 51 new Tiemco hooks to flyhooks.org yesterday, bringing the total up to 832 hooksizes with image. Updates was on the following hooks:
Thanks to all that have contributed to this so far!
