I'm Sure if you ck Pauls flybox you can find one! As Paul and others can attest it is my go-to and stay with fly for big bass. It's all about the fly and not the angler! ;) Posted Image


I do, indeed, still have that fly. Last time we were on the water, you mentioned that you planned to tie a simpler variation in the future. What changes were you contemplating?

Thanks,
Paul

Perry, I am sure you can imagine how much mess there is going to be at our table!.. We should definitely eat first and fill up the Wing Baskets with trimmings, we can always say the wings were on the undercooked side?.

Let's see who else might want to join us on the 6th. We might want to start with a simpler pattern for beginners, although ending the evening with one of these would be epic. My Dustbuster sucks, but I'll bring it along just in case...

Paul, I believe that the colour bands and spots and eyes are not seen by the fish therefore it is more about the flyfisher and not the fish so can be eliminated. I believe the secret to this fly is the noise it makes and the profile. I attach an image of the fly from the front which shows the triangle profile which I believe is important.

Just because you fish a lot doen't mean you are great or even good. It just means you fish a lot!!

Perry, do you think I should let these Guys loose with Razor Blades or make them use scissors to trim?.

Paul, if we keep it to one Colour on the Head (White) we can use Marker Pens to colour up Black/Green if you like, If we are going to do Stacking as well as Spinning it is going to be way above beginner skills, one fly will take 30 mins for an experienced person, especially with Rubber legs in the mix as it slows up the trimming process a bit.

Spinning is hard enough for a first time and Perry is right about what the fish see.
One important skill with this fly is the Weed-Guard, this has to be tied in the right order and you can make it a Single 40lb mono or 2x 20lb Mono if you want to double up, I prefer the double guard over the single as it balances the fly and the fish crush/bite down the "thinner" Mono easier than one thick guard.

I can't be Linda, I don't know how to play the tambourine.

I am up for trying the famous nearnuff though, others should come out, at any skill level it was a good time

Cheers

We could be the Doobie Brothers!

As for the tambourine, don't knock it until you've tried it (hmmm... I can sense a flaw in my logic).

At the Riverside Pub in Bedford. It's in the same building as the restaurant formerly called Smitty's.

Hope you can join us,
Paul

If I pressed all the right buttons (my Wife isn't overly confident on my ability to do this but I don't get the Joke?) then this should appear in the Upcoming events calendar on the home page.

Such is the case Paul, in fact I have a badge from J Edgar Hoover to prove it.
