this weekend at the Spring Flyfishing Show

I'm demonstrating a few new fly patterns at the spring show this weekend in Newark, UK. I really enjoy this show, great collection of tyers and other flyfishing fixated folk and there is always a really good turn out of visitors.

I am not going to demo the realistics as previous, I'm focused more on some new fishing patterns that are working really well for me at the moment and that include some interesting steps forward in technique. a few of the patterns I'll tie this weekend:
  • a mayfly (danica) nymph pattern that devastated the browns and grayling last summer
  • the bootlace... a may adult pattern incorporating shoe lace for buoyancy
  • the yarn spider... the quick to tie, robust, buoyant terrestrial that proved itself in wales in summer 2008
  • a trout/salmon egg pattern (based on the unreal egg by Jim Pettis) that the grayling can't leave alone in winter
look forward to seeing you there... come and say hi
