With only a short number of hours in the day for Fishing the next best thing is tying flies!
I’ve done a fair bit over the a few months and posted quite a lot over Facebook and not here so making up for it. I’ve done a few smaller boxes of dries but mostly nymphs in all colours and sizes.
The nymph below has been the bomb for the grayling so far me and my good mates!
Hook, size 14 Hanak h450bl
Bead, 3.5m gold
Body, squirrel hybrid black pepper
Tag, glo bright 5
Rib, gold medium wire
Thorax, small amount of 17 spectra dubbing
To finish off add more squirrel in front of the 17 and brush over, it Gives a great affect when wet!
Winter bugging for grayling is something else. U love it or you hate it, and I love it! Everybody has there favourite pattern and for love no money you won’t get a look in but me I’m happy to show the world. Presentation and size and a splash of colour for good measure does me well 🙂
More flies to follow in the next posts I’ll be adding tying videos soon also. Hope you like the pattern and if you do tie it I’m sure your not going to be disappointed!
