    I catch the vast majority of my river fish on spiders (soft hackles), or wee wets (both hackled and palmered winged wet flies; also wingless palmers have taken their fair share). After that,...

    Hi,

    I would also recommend learning to whip finish by hand. That's all I do and I find, once I got the hang of it, I have much better control than with a tool. Then again, having never really...

    I would highly recommend a partridge skin and a starling skin. If you shoot, you can get the starling yourself. It's a very good skin for soft-hackles, and highly under-rated. Don't make that...
