    Talking A new experiment

    Was playing around again. What do you guys think?





    THE AFRICAN FLY ANGLER

    If you're fly fishing as though you are 'in a contest', and the only objective is to 'catch fish' - you are missing the point .... and that is disappointing

    "Fly fishing is for those who hold that the fun in the race of life is in the running, not just the winning, that existence is its own justification, that a day spent in a stream or a pond with a goal in mind is a joy even if the goal is not achieved."

    Hi Morne,

    Looks like a nice wire weave. Maybe try a partridge or CDC hackle at the collar to give it a bit more movement. It should sink well like a classic ptn.

    Thanx guys

    Yes Darryl, its the first time i have played around with weaving, and as you can see its not very neat. Every now and then I clean up my desk and usually see what I can come up with by useing all the little left overs from previous flies

    Talking about desks, I need more space

    Very nice. I think you will get better results with weaves by using softer and flexible materials, at least while you're getting the technique down.
