With some time on my hands in the evenings this past week, I made up a few flees for the new season, I'm not one to sit at the vice and churn loads of flees out, same can be said about the floats as I start to loose concentration after a few and I would rather concentrate on quality over quantity any day of the week.
A few flies that did me well last year at the start of the season were these ribbed black spiders.
These also accounted for a few last season, I'm not quite sure where the dressing came from but fished wet they produced some nice fish.
Finally a couple of parachute hairs ears I have been practicing with over the closed months and these were the best 2 out of approx a dozen or so, so finally getting the tying right.
A couple of floats to keep that side of things ticking over, the first being a cork bodied waggler.
Banded in yellow with an orange top and painted green stem
And a couple of cork trotting floats to finish off with.
One red, one yellow completed in cork with painted stems.
I hopefully have some fishing planned for this week, weather dependent of course and the condition of the rivers after all the rain.
