I HAVE SEEN THE FUTURE
AND THE FUTURE IS
so if that wasn't enough i then tried some of piketrek eyes now when i received these i thought OK just some normal 3d epoxy eyes in 9 and 10 mm but how wrong i was when i examined then i found that there is an almost rubber like feel to these eyes so you and actually shape them to your head or just have then normal flat as above great product
so that's the first fly done and i was very impressed at not only how the materials looked colour wise but how easily it tied i was able to tie up this big fly (1o inch's ) in a very small amount of time ill certainly be making some more of these up
piketrek have sourced these remarkable life and fly changing gills and they have opened a door to a whole new world of pike flies i mean there is so many things you could do with these , unfortunately i was rather hurried this morning due to having to go to work so only got one tied but all i thought about all day is the many things i could do with these including using them on subbugs so keep checking back as i will be doing a load more next week
OK i used just a tad to much epoxy at the gill edge but I've never tied with these before so I'm sure ill be forgiven ill get it 100% next time .....................
*now just a note here i have to say i get stuff to review all the time and one thing i wont do is lie about something if i think something is shite then ill say so i get grief for this sometimes but I'm an angler first through and through and if i wont use an inferior product then i wont expect anybody else to , i get no financial gain from reviews and neither do i expect it if you have something that you think is good enough then great but don't expect me to lie about it if its not up to scratch.......
the thing about piketrek is they are anglers first and demand the same levels as i do so that why I'm more than happy to promote there stuff through my blog and why don't you click any of the pictures above go over to there site and try something i can assure it will be the best money you will have spent i for one will carry on supporting these guys even though Greg won the fenland flyer this year but i wont hold that against him .........
