a fine new year

well we are only a couple of days away from a brand new year and I'm lucky enough to live in one of the best city's in the world for a new year celebration yup Edinburgh has a great hogmany but for me there will be no getting pissed this year as I'm working right through , oh well at least I've got a new bunch of stuff to play with from the chaps at piketrek including some rather nice hooks

---------

so with plenty to get my brain into gear and ideas flowing i waste no time in getting some flies together and testing the hooks i got which by the way are pretty dam good for the price bloody sharp and most importantly bloody strong
BAITFISH ON A ROPE
piketrek have been out on the hunt again bringing us yet more fantastic tying materials this time in the form of gasto fibre , i haven't had much chance to play with it yet during the festivities i have had a few ideas and one is for a smaller bait fish to fish hook up on the bottom a very nice mobile material that is very easy to tie with

-------
so the fly below is tied on piketrek eagle claw jig hook and has a rattle built onto the top of the hook shank doing this means not only do you have a very attractive bottom fly with an added attraction of a rattle but it will flip over and fish hook up every time , when i did a soak test in the bath with this (yes i took it into the bath) it has a fantastic fat minnow profile


ROACH ON A ROPE

so tied the above fly up which i suppose is a bit of a hybrid between a humongous trout fly and a murdich minnow but this has a rattle built in , i looked at this and was so impressed that it would be a great fly for a local venue and has everything i need for a catching predators on this very hard local venue but i reckon it will do the business on any water so i had to tie a box full as I'm sure a couple of my Buddy's will no doubt pinch a couple got a good feeling about these all we need now is some De iced water to try them but that will be soon


i think this fly will be a killer this year and i don't just think for pike i really think this will do the business with any species that eats minnows , shiners , or baitfish in general both fresh and saltwater click the link below to go take a look or purchase a pack at a great price

Those roaches are super fly looking bugs. Soo buggy. I'm gonna have to give those a whirl.
