we love big flies

BIG FLIES ROCK


been on a tying frenzy last week and came up with a few favorites in colours from my days when i used chuck lumps of plastic so here's the results which all have a rattle inbuilt

piketrek high Tye


the hook is a 6/0 octopus hook all the materials are from www.pikeflyrod.com the rattle is hidden in between the eyes the eyes are then covered with a thin layer of epoxy the whole fly is tied high tye style which if you've never used this method is well worth a go as it allows maximum movement of the fly materials with little actually tied to the hook a full step by step on high ties can be found on my website here tie a high tie or theres a slightly more difficult although still easy high tie roach using ep fibre and sf fibre click here to see it

deceivers


deceivers are always a good fly to have in you box and is a fly that will pretty much catch any fish that eats other fish it can be tied in any size and in the colours as above may be mistaken for a roach in freshwater or maybe a sand eel in saltwater

playing with eyes can give you a completely different look but still an all round great fly



the eyes on this fly are from www.deercreek.co.uk nick has a great range of stuff and like www.piketrek.com they are a UK based company so if your in the UK please support these guys as there as passionate about fly fishing and tying as i am even if your overseas these guys still provide a great fast service so please check em out , i am not sponsored in anyway by these company's i just like to support great service and product
