Really trying tae work on my muddlers right noo. Peach muddlers and Clan Chiefs are a must up here in Shetland; magenta too for low light conditions. But for lochs wi large populations o sticklebacks, they're about the only thing the troot will eat!

Beautiful flies Stu. Some cracking fish there too.
I always loved muddlers for the top dropper when chasing wild browns in mid wales lakes but unfortunately I’ve got a deer hair allergy passed down from the old man.
Great time to stock the box up

There's an entirely red version coming called "The Spectre", it just takes me ages to get them tied when the only tools I have are a hammer and a sickle ;)

Cheers, man! In all my years in Wales, I never did much fly fishing (for my sins!); it was all about the shore fishing. I'm sure the Welsh lakes must be amazing to fish.
Shame about the deer hair allergy, I also tie "muddler" heads with synthetic materials too and just Gink them up!

Although I know as much about flies as I do about quantum physics, I think they look great , and the colours on the trout are fantastic , especially the one with the green rod above it .

Well done.

I loved Claerwen when it was less accessible. Had to walk an hour to start catching good numbers and could get 50 browns to about 12 inches.
Elan valley has less fish but is stocked so you get some bigger fish.
Clwyedog before they had petrol engines was magic. Since I started sea fishing seriously I’ve spent less and less time and this year I was planning on doing a bit more again. Typical timing. All the best

Are there Mullet where you are Stu?
Traditional wisdom would say no, but yeah, there are. I know 2 places where good sized shoals have been spotted and confirmed; they're on my radar ;)

Cracking looking brownies :). Oddly back in Grafham's prime the only fly they would take when they were on the snail was a mini Muddler.

I'm almost too lazy to tie them for myself unfortunately, man! This is isolation getting the better of me haha.

This time of year up here a lot of the trout are on snail, you either have tae gie them something gaudy or something tiny and dark!

Good luck with mate . They are sure fish catchers
Cheers, man!
If you're needing some flies tied up, Jackie Mahon on FB is your guy. I bought a big selection of dabblers fae him and they're immaculate! Very reasonably priced too.
