I often get asked to tie flies that have appeared in magazines but seldon so soon after the magazine has been published. This order for 6 each of the 4 featured patterns from the article was not a challenge and not really a custom tie but I loved the look of these flies. I will be tying and using them this season for sure both for reservoir loch style fishing and on any river where there is a chance of a sea trout or two.
