    First one for me. Always like a fly with a hazy neck of fibres. Think it gives more twinkle for the fish to think its alive.

    I thought foul hooking was against the rules at most fisheries:)

    Who said anything about foul hooking fish. Weighted stalking bugs are used to get the fly down to the fish fast not for jigging in the hope of foul hooking one.

    Counted my flies up a while back got nearly 3 thousand, one box I have is from when I first went fly fishing around 50 years ago back in those days the grey ghost was a very popular fly and I caught many fish on it also the dog knobler was another good pattern, always enjoyed stalking rising fish with a dry fly on a 4lb leader, most of the Trout fisheries here in this part of the Country have gone now lechlade is now the nearest to me.

    I fished Lechlade about four years now and my best from there was just under 10 pound Rainbow. That was on a fly that looked like a Golhead Black Spider.
