In the fall sea trout will sometimes form schools. Usually its the smaller ones but sometimes when the conditions are right you find the big ones.ramme en flok med mange store fisk i mellem.]]>
Banderillas http://globalflyfisher.com/patterns/banderillas/index.html#41227 John, In order to keep the materials and tying thread from slipping over the edge of the tub, it's a good idea to melt a small rim or collar in one or both ends of the tube. As it's shown here (for an other application, but the principle is the same). Martin

The art of the trout fly http://globalflyfisher.com/reviews/books/dunham1.htm#41218 Egmont, I have always loved this book, which was one of the really early ones in my now rather large library, and one I often return to and love to run my fingers through. 4x5 and 8x10.... them were the days. When I used to write for and edit printed magazines, we often used large format cameras for the covers, and I was always fascinated by these large gizmos and the beautiful results they produced. Your photos for this book just confirms that fact. You did a very good job. I guess mine is a first edition from 1988, and in a very good condition too - and even signed by Judith Dunham. But I'm not parting with that any time soon, so I hope you will find a copy somewhere else. Martin

The art of the trout fly http://globalflyfisher.com/reviews/books/dunham1.htm#41217 Greetings, I was searching for a copy of the first edition when I came across this review. I wish to say thank you for the very kind words you wrote about the book and the photography, considering I am the photographer of the book. In those days all images were taken with a 4x5 camera and there are even a couple of sets were I used an 8x10. All images were taken inside the garage studio. I had a great time putting together all the sets on an 4 by 8 foot plywood table. Warmest regards, Egmont van Dyck

Fish Flies I and II http://globalflyfisher.com/reviews/books/bookbase/show_single.php?id=108#41196 There is an original volume 1 and 2. The newer volume is an update and a single volume. Terry passed away a few years ago. When he was working on the update he contacted me. The volumes are decidedly USA and even more importantly, Western Trout. There are other types of patterns in these books, they are after all reference books. There aren't a lot of photos in this book compared to several other newer books. If you get a copy of Dave Hughes' Trout,and the Benchside Reference by Leeson and Schollmeyer, I suspect you'll have most of the reference materials covered.Hughes' book is quite good also. Some of the writing in this book is quite good. While there are some omissions, this is a reference book and as such it really is one of the best. There are very few reference books with the depth of this one.The author admits that he didn't include a lot of stuff. Since most of the stuff is pretty traditional, things like Czech patterns are really derivative in nature and are often variations of many things. Even the "F" fly is derivative in nature and based on a trude wing pattern design which is included. He also talks about substituting materials and making things out of other materials as well. Perhaps there needs to be a World or European type book done. Given all of Martin's exposure to flies, this sounds like the prefect project! I am not sure that a lot of the current vogue of using plastic, tons of glue is what this traditional fellow is all about. I also know he has Catskill roots and lived out East for awhile. He was great friends with Glenn Overton of the wonder wax fame . Glenn wrote some material for our Catskill Fly Tyers Guild newsletter a while back.

Threading a bobbin http://globalflyfisher.com/tiebetter/threading-a-bobbin/index.php#41190 If you play guitar the waste ends of a wound steel strings in various gauges make excellent cleaners for gunked up bobbin tubes. The thinner gauge non-wound steel strings make for good threaders - glue a few beads on as a 'handle' and to make it easier to find on a messy desk.

Favorite Flies for Baltic Seatrout http://globalflyfisher.com/reviews/books/favorite-flies-for-baltic-seatrout/index.php#41184 Hey Martin, I know it's been a few years since this topic was active but I am planning on fishing a day near Port Stanley in the Falkland Islands in a week or so and I was wondering if these flies would apply down there or if you could point me in a direction for some info on Falkland patterns!

Threading a bobbin http://globalflyfisher.com/tiebetter/threading-a-bobbin/index.php#41183 There is already a hook end bobbin threader on the market. I have one and it works fine. Just give it a twirl and it catches the thread for you. This task would be easier if manufacturers made the spool end(inner end) of the tube funnel shaped. The thread could be stuck into the tube easier. Floss threaders are great, and you could also use them for, you know, flossing.

This y is the "Golden Sally" tube fly. The tube I used is a small clear flexible liner tube. I used white 6/0 thread. The body was built using white hackle feathers tied on by the tip and palmered forward to within 1mm from the front tip of the tube. Next, I used golden pheasant cape for the wings and longer strung feathers for the over wing or antennas. The eyes are halographic golden self hadhesive size 3/16" or 5 mm. The head was finished off using Loons UV resin light and set with a laser UV torch. The book is a dry hook size 12. Instead of using a hook tube to fasten the hook to the tube, I heated a scratch awl tip and inserted it into to end of the tube. This process stretched the end of the tube allowing me to set the eye into the tube. http://globalflyfisher.com/pix/display.php?code=afbcecaf7a3ea

While sitting at my fly tying bench, a house fly was buzzing around me. After I convinced it to stop, I decided to tie one. Here is the "House Fly" tied on my Nor Vise. The materials I used were black thread; black moose hair; small feathers from a Whiting 4B rooster cape and a size 12 eye up Mustad 94842 hook. http://globalflyfisher.com/pix/display.php?code=3cbae77bccb3

This is my "Queen of Hearts". Taken just after I tied it. It is a wet fly tied on a size 6 bait hook. The Queen was tied on my Nor Vise. This fly looks to be suspended in mid air with out benefit of a fly support or prop. http://globalflyfisher.com/pix/display.php?code=523da78fc7991
