After tying frantically final yr, my packing containers are all fairly stuffed with flies I’m comparatively assured with. Nevertheless, I don’t have lots of choices for early season (February & March) when the water continues to be chilly and the trout haven’t began to feed on nymphs. Just a few latest new additions from Flybox grabbed my consideration so I ordered some package and bought the vice out.
This materials is a kind of organza in a ribbon model with a stable edge. It regarded ideally suited to tying ribs on lures, cormorants and diawl bachs with the smaller fibres making a small hackle impact down the fly. Consistent with the early season theme, I tied a few black and greens and a black and pink choice. The black and inexperienced accounted for half a dozen fish over two periods at Farmoor lately, together with within the Bank Masters competition.
Now, I’m not one for having fly packing containers stuffed with brightly colored lures: I favor to fish with pure, imitative flies. Nevertheless, there are occasions once you want one thing a bit of completely different and a strategic blob has caught me fish in troublesome circumstances, significantly early season, in scorching circumstances or when the fish are being a bit of choosy. Flyboxes new Eggstacy appeared like an fascinating materials to tie-up just a few blobs. Its quite simple to make use of and has an intriguing color change and nearly jelly-like look when moist. Haven’t had likelihood to attempt these out but however I’ll report again once I’ve given them a swim.
