Display for the BFFI

I have tried to tie up a few dozen flies for the display clips at the BFFI. A row of heavy weight bugs and shrimps, some smaller loop nymphs (a fly that has done well for me for grayling already this year), some loop wing emergers and some paraduns.

Hook: TMC 102Y #19
Thread: Sheer 14/0, tan
Hackle: Badger, rooster
Wing: TMC Aerowing, tan
Tail: Coq de Leon fibres
Abdomen: Wapsi superfine, lt. brown
Thorax: Rabbit under-fur

Dave - Have a nice weekend at the BFFI. Your flies should go over very well. This is a beautiful little dry fly.

Hi Dave, hope you enjoyed the show mate! Was great to see some of your patterns, although I opted not to say hello as you looked very busy.

Great show though, hope to say a proper hello there next year :)

All the best,

Gareth (Fly Fishing in South Wales)

Ray- it was a cracking weekend. Hopefully you'll coincide a cross pond visit some day and attend..

Gareth - sorry I missed you. Hopefully we'll meet on the river soon.

As you say great show... some pictures to follow :)
