Tying the hotspot hare’s ear jig

I’ve been tying a few flies today and while tying i thought i would give making a video a bash, not done it before so bare with me 🙂  This jig has been working a treat over the last few months with the grayling and the trout are quite partial of it to!.  Not wanting trout but it happens… There is a nice line of them in my box now ready for the trout season 🙂 Bring it on!!!

For the rising days to come.

I’ve had a few problems over the last few weeks and unable to go fishing or even tie flies but im on the mend now and hopefully i’ll have a few trips out soon. Sorry for the lack of posts guys!

Last night I decided to sit down and start tying a few dries ready for the coming trout season, it’s not far away and im counting the days down till I can stick my feet in the water that hasn’t been fished all year; pocket water, my favorite! Fast shallow runs with rocks everywhere with flity trout laying in wait for  passing prey. What more could a fly fisherman ask for  🙂 This is what im talking about below

I’ve got a load more dry-fly patterns to tie up and post soon,  im just waiting on my new hooks to arrive from Phil, http://www.flytyingboutique.com/
