Quick update

Things haven’t been as quiet as you think around here. I’ve been working on an easy and quick to tie synthetic baitfish pattern, the last couple of days. Which you’ll see on my next post(s).

But this afternoon, I spent some time with Philippe, who’s one of the guys of our six men group to go toss some pike flies in Ireland in April. And I must say that he has tied an impressive collection of great looking pike flies so far!


But talking about flies and fish was only one of the reasons we got together this afternoon. We also exchanged some tying materials. And this is a very interesting piece I received from him today.


An entire, perfectly dried and preserved deer skin. That’s something that will give me lots of hours of tying pleasure and surely a large number of great flies to fish with.

So thanks again Philippe!

The synthetics will be for tomorrow or the day after…

Richard, I’m working on them, so just be patient. But I think it will be a post in several parts…

Pike Pimp, ik zei het al eerder tegen Philippe, ik hoop dat die ferry niet kapseist met al onze vliegen. We moeten er maar op letten dat we onze wagens in het midden van de boot parkeren.

The grey piker, wow, dat is een naam die zal blijven hoor, fantastisch gevonden! En ik ben blij dat het materiaal je bevalt.
