adventures of a an obsessed predator fly tier


 back in the cave and a quick blog , this will pretty much be picture heavy and just an update on what's going on now that the world is opening up after the lockdowns (unless your a tory then there wasn't a lockdown as they count themselves as far superior to us peasants)

so ive been mega busy with fly tying  and keeping up with orders and speaking of orders let me say again thar the website at the moment has a lead time of around 2 weeks , this means your order will be dispatched either before or at the end of that cut off date , please remember that i hand make every fly nothing is imported from Africa and please people avoid African made predator flies they simply get destroyed  and the hooks bend out , this i know as i have many clients with the same issue who come to me for this reason , buy local folks plenty of great guys out there .


so yea its minnow time i really enjoy tying these and they fish great 

thundercreeks are available through me or the website link at the bottom of the page 

fried alives continue to catch all species and all sizes quite a remarkable fly pattern and the amount of fish this fly actually catches is mad especially when there on the fry patterns 

talking of fly patterns i have a couple of new designs out the mczigbug and the warhead , the mczigbug has been designed for mostly carp on the surface and has been destroying venues across the uk , and the warhead has excided exceptions with some unbelievable catches including bloody catfish who would have thought that 


the warhead patterns are available on the website here is the link 

need further proof well take a look at the video below of some recent catches on warheads and zigbugs

the warhead is breaking down some fisheries and im hearing that one fishery has actually banned its use because its so deadly and catching so many fish nobody else is standing a chance , but hey you know that aint my call , all i know is the gent was using it on a waggler and having to take 2 keepnets fishing with him lol well done fella .

so on that point did you know you can actually use these on coarse gear oh yea , just float fish em either tot them on a waggler and hold back every now and again to raise in the current , deadly for chub or with the zigs just chuck em out with a weight and have them on a fluro dropper so the float above the bottom or weed , job done .

ok so mid sept ill be heading off on a predator hunt in norfolk for a week , most of this will be filmed so really looking forward to that , if your ordering from the website please do so before the end of the second week of sept ill notify on social media when im back ....thanks all


remember if your out fishing put your catches back and take your rubbish home 

see ya all soon
