spongebob chesse sucks

 Been playing around with stuff on the vice mostly the last week or so , me and te destroyer had a quick tying day last Friday , sometimes home life gets in the way of the planned fishing trips so we got a quick session with some tying , like we need an excuse so after conan left I went through to the cave and whipped out a few more done with nayat hair  , it’s a nice material  and looks great in the water very mobile
These ones come in at around 7 inch’s and are tied on 6/0 hooks , although they look quite bulky there not they are actually quite slim line when wet , this one has a standard 3d eyes for a slow sink and a slow fluid movement in the water

Same idea different colour and 8mm hard eyez
Ive also lately been mixing natural fibres and synthetics gliss and glint plus is still a favourite and been doing quite well on mixing it up with subbugs so doing standard ties seems to be a natural progression so here ive used all gliss n glint body’s with deercreek dyed black peacock hearl works quite well I think

If you get time check out my friends over at frankenfly it’s a fantastic site and even I pick up a few tips from great tiers around the world, again this is a non profit site just full of great tips find em here

Fishing again with the master of disaster the destroyer

Above is a random picture of a rather large mushroom for no other reason than it was there when I got out the car and bears a stunning resemblance to the food in the destroyer’s beard after a trip
It was lovely to get a welcoming wave off as we speed past the fishing lodge cheers fellas
Lunch time
Not much was happening in the a.m and lunchtime was soon upon us, there just so happens to be a supermarket on the way to the local fishery and we always pop in for our food usually scotch eggs and salami, and this time I quite fancied some individual cheese portions and happened upon these SpongeBob square pants chesses which I thought would do the trick …….
You know ive tasted some utter crud in my time but these were just absolutely feckin awful even for a fishing snack , the thing is I reckon the supermarkets and people that make these things have got it made because parents all around the world buy this garbage for there kids you know the latest cartoon character on a cheap snack , I mean would you ever get the chance to try it probably not because your kids wouldn’t let you and no kid is going to say I don’t like it , because its got there favourite character on it and that wouldn’t be cool ……….do yourself a favour parents buy them an apple over this pigs swill in a wax coatingJ
The afternoon was somewhat better with the fish being in a more playful mood
With Mr Destroyer catching the first one of the day which was a bonus the blank was off
Another one for the destroyer, he’s actually getting quite good at this
And on his own flies at last, confidence is a great thing and it took him a while to get there but I kept telling him his flies look really good and id fish them no bother and the proof at last is an esox hanging off one, top job mate
Of course not one to be outdone by the young jedi I stuck a subbug on and leathered this one off the surface ……….talking of subbugs
I had a few orders for subbugs to do and knowing how long they take to make I just cracked on with it and of course as always happens you get interrupted half way through , although this time it was brother ken so was happy to speak to the redneck
As it turned out I actually ended up giving him a full subbug fly tying lesson via skype , nor that he cant make them good enough its just that sometimes you end up with a few bad habits or should that be your own way of doing things so was a pleasure to give him a refresher

  The finished lesson
After ken had disappeared I decided to and tie up a pink and purple bug pink and purple are such an underused colour but can be so good and indeed pink has saved my ass from a few blanks, recently ive started using a lot of gliss and glint plus in my subbugs for the tails and ive also been using deercreeks dyed peacock hearl as an extra on the backs looks really sweet
 So im thinking we have like a month left of fly fishing for pike unless the weather is kind , I have a few goals to reach yet this year , the main one is to get the destroyer a double , its been so close in fact there is fish that were a hairs breath away from it but im confident that by the end of October he will have done it watch this space.
 So we have had a bit of madness this past week in the form of the a deercreek pro team fish myself and Conan had the honour of taking Andy “the gypsy” Saunders for a few days fishing in Scotland one of his goals was to catch his first pike on the fly , let me tell you madness ensued , rods were broken tears flowed and many sweets were eaten watch this space next week folks ………….its gonna be a ride
